Recognition of both Gavin Herbert and Roger Steinert as the recipients of the Visionary Award by the Foundation Fighting Blindness at its annual Dining in the Dark event, Irvine, CA, March 25, 2010. Foundation Fighting Blindness is a leading philanthropic organization committed to the alleviation of suffering from blindness, particularly due to retinal degenerations.

Program Chair, annual meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, Boston, MA, April, 2010. This week-long meeting was attended by over 6,500 ophthalmologists and allied health personnel. In addition to sharing the program, Dr. Steinert presented two scientific papers, was an instructor on
Secretariat Award, American Academy of Ophthalmologythree courses, and moderated many of the key sessions.
