    Retirement is around the corner for David Karcher, ASCRS executive director


    Karcher also co-founded The American Society of Ophthalmic Administrators (ASOA) in 1985. ASOA is a leading organization for the business side of the ophthalmic practice, providing support, tools, and resources to help ophthalmologists grow, expand, and improve their businesses, the press release said.

    Karcher also facilitated development of the ASCRS Foundation, which provides humanitarian support domestically and internationally. Each year in the United States, hundreds of eligible cataract patients who are unable to afford surgery are paired with volunteer surgeons who perform the necessary procedures. In Ethiopia, more than 23,000 patients annually are treated through ASCRS Foundation’s Robert Sinskey Eye Institute in Addis Ababa, the organization said.
