“For a fifth year in a row, the number of ASCRS and ASOA member donations to "make the match" has set a new Foundation record. We are inspired to continue this commitment knowing that each year more of you give and increase your giving- not to mention the growing roster of volunteer surgeons - to support this sight-restoring, life-changing work. All of us at Aerie thank you for the precious gifts of your donation, time and talent.”
