Local Eye Surgeons Will Provide Free Cataract Surgery to Patients in Need
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA – October 10th, 2020 – Kremer Eye Center is pleased to announce its participation in the 5th Annual National Sight Week (October 18-24), sponsored by the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Foundation.
During National Sight Week, Rebecca Bausell, M.D. will be performing free cataract surgery for a local, eligible patient in the community.
National Sight Week is a celebration of volunteerism, during which members of the ASCRS Operation Sight network are encouraged to contribute one or more charitable cataract surgeries in their own communities. The ASCRS Foundation works to match eligible patients in need with local volunteer surgeons.
Operation Sight is the ASCRS Foundation’s domestic charitable cataract surgery program. Its mission is to assist uninsured or underinsured American patients, who cannot obtain cataract care on their own. By leveraging the combined strength of established charitable organizations along with ASCRS-member volunteer surgeons, Operation Sight provides needed care to those unable to access or afford surgery.
Kremer Eye Center will work closely with Operation Sight to identify eligible patients to receive free cataract surgery as a part of the practice’s participation in National Sight Week. Individuals interested in being considered should visit ascrs.org/foundation/operation-sight to apply. Potential candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to complete the detailed vetting process prior to National Sight Week.
