Cataract Awareness Month

June is Cataract Awareness Month

Cataract Awareness Month in June is the perfect time to celebrate your work as a sight-restoring cataract surgeon as well as take the time to hone your skills and learn new ways to improve your practice and patient care.

Cataract surgery is considered one of the most common—if not the most common—elective procedure performed worldwide.1 Its ability to restore vision has been associated with significant improvements in quality of life.2

Take #ASCRSCatarACTION by choosing to do one, two, or all three of the #ASCRSCatarACTIONs. Share what you’ve achieved on social media tagging ASCRS and using #ASCRScatarACTION and #CataractAwarenessMonth.
