They're annual rites of spring: the joint meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) and American Society of Ophthalmic Administrators (ASOA) and a new season of Major League Baseball. On Friday evening, March 17, the events converged as several thousand ASCRS/ASOA delegates attended a welcome reception at SBC Park, home of the San Francisco Giants.

They're annual rites of spring: the joint meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) and American Society of Ophthalmic Administrators (ASOA) and a new season of Major League Baseball. On Friday evening, March 17, the events converged as several thousand ASCRS/ASOA delegates attended a welcome reception at SBC Park, home of the San Francisco Giants.

There were plenty of photo opportunities as Lou Seal, the Giants' mascot, was on hand to pose with attendees. Video crews also roamed the crowd, sending live pictures of delegates to the scorecard screen.

The venue provided attendees with spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay and samples of a variety of San Francisco cuisine. In addition, delegates were treated to a tour of the stadium that included the field, locker room, and press facilities, plus a chance to practice their swing in the batting cages.

The event was supported by grants from ASCRS/ASOA and Advanced Medical Optics Inc. (AMO).
