Late yesterday, ASCRS lost Roger Steinert, MD, a longtime friend and leader of our organization. Dr. Steinert was the chair of the department of ophthalmology, Irving H. Leopold professor, University of California, and creator of the Gavin Herbert Eye Institute. Previously, he was president of the medical staff and director of the corneal service at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. ASCRS was fortunate to have him attend the inaugural Steinert Lecture as part of ASCRS Refractive Day held in conjunction with the ASCRS•ASOA Symposium & Congress last month in Los Angeles. A former ASCRS President and Program Chair, Dr. Steinert was a friend to many and beloved by all who knew him. He will be missed.
