Since 1974, ASCRS has led anterior segment surgical advancements through educational programs, publications, and on-line resources throughout the Ophthalmic industry. They are the primary source of up-to-date clinical information, published research, and regulatory information affecting anterior segment surgeons and the patients they serve.

ASCRS empowers Anterior Segment Surgeons to improve the vision, outcomes and quality of life for their patients through innovative approaches to Education, Advocacy, and Philanthropy.

ASCRS is also responsible for the most exciting annual event in the ophthalmology community. The ASCRS Annual Meeting. This year’s meeting is being held here:

Mandalay Bay Convention Center
Las Vegas, Nevada
July 23-27, 2021

The Annual ASCRS is a peer-to-peer knowledge sharing event and considered by most to be the top conference in the industry. This meeting offers a wide variety of innovative learning formats for Ophthalmologists.

A select team from Laser Locators attends each ASCRS and AAO Annual Meeting. While attendees are shopping for new equipment, we can offer appraisals of their old equipment on the spot which helps them determine if the time is right to upgrade. We can also offer just some consultative advice if you need some guidance on not only which model may be a good fit for your practice, but also the overall market and sales data for that particular model laser as well as its competitors.

Over the past 17 years we have done business with hundreds if not thousands of Ophthalmologists across the world in over 100 countries. Since most of our clients don’t visit our facility, we also use major annual trade shows to come together, walk the floor, find our clients to shake hands (or fist bump these days) and just meet face to face. Especially after this past year, we are very much looking forward to seeing anyone we have done business with over the years and just catch up for a few minutes. While we have always used technology to embrace our customers, nothing can permanently replace a face to face “thank you”.

We are very excited to be attending the ASCRS Annual Meeting in Las Vegas and we hope to see you there!
