About the Foundation
The American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) and the Foundation of the American Society of Retina Specialists (FASRS) are in a partnership for patients.
While ASRS works to support its members in enhancing patient care and charting the course for the future of retina, the Foundation strives to support patients and the retina community through education, awareness and fundraising activities like those listed on this page.
Patient Education Fact Sheets
The ASRS Foundation’s Retina Health Series offers a collection of disease-specific webpages with understandable facts about causes, symptoms, risk factors, diagnostic testing, treatment, and prognoses of an array of retinal conditions.
Each webpage offers a printable PDF fact sheet for your convenience. Select titles are now being offered in both regular and large-print fomats. Check out the series.

Public Awareness Posters Raise AMD Awareness Nationally
The Foundation has developed and distributed "Got AMD?" public awareness posters to cast a light on Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
Since their release in February 2013, ASRS has mailed hundreds of posters to member practices, senior citizens facilities, low-vision rehabilitation clinics, community health centers, and Veterans Administration facilities 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.
Surgical Retina Video Learning Library
This series of instructional videos offers vitreoretinal fellows, residents and those early in their careers a bird's-eye view and expert instruction on many of today's most common retina techniques and surgeries. Browse series >>
