WHAT IS THE ASOPRS FOUNDATION?

The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstruction Surgery Foundation was established in 1999 as the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery was founded in 1969 to establish a qualified body of surgeons who have training and experience in this highly specialized field. The purpose of the Society is to advance training, research and patient care in the fields of aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids, tear system, orbit and face. The ASOPRS Foundation is dedicated to ongoing education, humanitarian projects, and research in the field of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, locally, nationally, and internationally in harmony with the ASOPRS mission.

The 20th Anniversary Year of the ASOPRS Foundation. 

You have heard quite lot about our celebratory activities throughout this year.  It isn't over yet! 

While we had hoped to have a major presence at both the Spring and Fall Meetings for 2021, COVID-19 has had an impact on our celebrations.

We do honor our founders, acknowledge our high donors and thank all of our members for your support and loyalty and had hoped to do so

at an appreciation reception at the Fall Meeting.  This will nor occur in Fall 2021, but we will extend our celebration of our anniversary in 2022. 

Thank you for being a part of the ASOPRS Foundation Team — together we can make a difference!
