ASCRS recognizes and is committed to supporting sustainability in healthcare. It is one of the founding co-sponsor societies of EyeSustain, a global coalition of ophthalmologists and eye societies seeking to engage, network, and educate our global ophthalmic community about more sustainable practices.
The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery recognizes that unnecessary waste produced during medical procedures will negatively affect the environment. We are taking the lead to sensitively identify areas of waste that can be safely addressed, without compromising our commitment to the highest quality of patient care and always putting patient safety and outcomes first. —Elizabeth Yeu MD, President, ASCRS
