Price Vision Group to Participate in National Sight Week

Local Eye Surgeons Will Provide Free Cataract Surgery

 

Dr. Mattew Feng operates on a patientIndianapolis, IN – Price Vision Group is pleased to announce its participation in the 2nd annual National Sight Week (October 15-21), sponsored by the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Foundation.

During National Sight Week, Dr. Francis Price, Jr, Dr. Matthew Feng and Dr. Sheila Pabon will be performing free cataract surgery for local, eligible patients.

National Sight Week is a celebration of volunteerism, during which members of the ASCRS Operation Sight network are encouraged to contribute one or more charitable cataract surgeries in their own communities. The ASCRS Foundation works to match needy, eligible patients with volunteer surgeons, and will provide a financial stipend for each surgery completed.

Operation Sight is the ASCRS Foundation’s domestic charitable cataract surgery program. Its mission is to assist uninsured American patients who can’t obtain cataract care on their own. By leveraging the combined strength of established charitable organizations along with ASCRS-member volunteer surgeons, Operation Sight provides needed care to those unable to access or afford surgery.

“The ASCRS Foundation’s Operation Sight initiative offers a solution for Americans in need by enabling ASCRS member eye surgeons to perform charitable cataract surgeries in their own communities with administrative and financial support from the ASCRS Foundation. Together, we’re working to end preventable cataract blindness in the United States,” says Dr. Stephen Lane, MD, Domestic Initiatives, co-chair of the ASCRS Foundation.

Price Vision Group is currently identifying potential, eligible patients to receive free cataract surgery as a part of the practice’s participation in National Sight Week. Individuals interested in being considered as a surgery candidate can visit OperationSight.ASCRS.org to apply. Potential candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to complete the vetting process in time for surgery.
