We’re pulling out all the corks for ASCRS 2018, three different femtosecond lasers and a dizzying event schedule.

Register for Wet Labs

First things first, if you haven’t registered for our wet labs, this would be a great time to do it. You can register for both wet labs in Cataract Procedures and/or Corneal procedures. We still have openings on April 14, 15 and 16. Each session is 30 minutes long. This is a great way for newbies to learn femtosecond procedures, and more experienced hands to find out what’s new.


Champagne Toast for New Medical Monitor

Introducing Bret Fisher, M.D. at ASCRSZiemer USA is proud to announce that Bret Fisher, M.D. will serve as our new medical monitor. Now it’s high time for a toast.

From 3 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, Ziemer will host a champagne celebration for Bret Fisher, M.D., at our booth. Dr. Fisher will provide leadership and clinical insight in the use of Ziemer’s product portfolio.

We are very pleased to fill this important role with a surgeon who has the diverse experience offered by Dr. Fisher,” said David Bragg, President of Ziemer USA. “His knowledge and practical expertise will be a great resource for anyone using Ziemer devices.” Learn more about Dr. Fisher.
