The Foundation of the American Society of Retina Specialists





Saving vision is our mission

More closely aligned than ever before, the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) and the Foundation for the American Society of Retina Specialists (FASRS) are entering into a new era of partnership for patients. ASRS will establish a vision and agenda for the profession's future, while the Foundation will serve as the fundraising engine to make that vision a reality.

ASRS and the Foundation are building a community united by a single goal: to improve the lives of people with retinal diseases. By focusing the expertise of retina specialists around the world, we can create innovative programs to preserve the precious gift of sight.

Contribute to the Foundation and help us as we seek to turn today's ideas into tomorrow's cures.

Foundation makes nationwide impact with AMD public awareness posters

AMD public service announcement poster

In support of its ongoing Saving Vision patient education initiative, the Foundation funded the development and distribution of "Got AMD?" public awareness posters to cast a light on this disease.

Since their release in February, ASRS has mailed more than 600 sets of posters to senior citizens facilities, low-vision rehabilitation clinics, community health centers, and Veterans Administration hospitals across the country—all by request!

This eye-catching 2-poster set demonstrates the distorted vision of someone living with AMD and encourages people to get an examination or seek treatment.

Bring these posters to your community during Healthy Vision Month

May is Healthy Vision  Month, making it the perfect time to join other ASRS members who have requested the "Got AMD?" posters for display in their practices and community centers in their hometown.

Request your posters while supplies last.
