Attendees will get loads of practical pearls that they can immediately apply in their practices. Key features are practically oriented talks, great surgical videos, and lots of time to talk one-on-one with our amazing faculty.
Douglas Koch, MD – Program Co-Chair

The ASCRS Summer Meeting will give all attendees hands-on educational opportunities with several wet lab offerings, including Phaco, Anterior Segment Labs, and DMEK/DSAEK. These labs will encompass the skills that are essential for YES and in-practice surgeons—and they’re included with registration!

If you couldn’t attend the Annual Meeting—or if you’ve never attended—the ASCRS Summer Meeting is the perfect opportunity to get a ‘taste’ of ASCRS education in a short amount of time at a great value and in a destination city!
Sumitra Khandelwal, MD, ASCRS Summer Meeting Program Co-Chair

As a resident, intern, and fellow, I took advantage of the educational offerings ASCRS had to offer. I know first-hand the difference ASCRS education can make while in training. Now, as the YES Clinical Committee Chair, I’m honored to give back and bring advanced clinical education to the next generation of ophthalmologists.

"If the Annual Meeting feels like drinking from a fire hydrant, the ASCRS Summer Meeting will be like enjoying a nice drink with friends. We’re delivering many of the “bests” from the Annual Meeting in a format that will allow everybody to learn, to meet, and to engage."
Daniel Chang, MD – Program Co-Chair
