Robert Osher has designed many contemporary IOLs and surgical instruments, and numerous new surgical techniques to go with them – or improve upon what was state-of-the-art. Many of these have been captured in video, and Osher’s surgical videos have won more than 25 first-prize honors at international congresses, including three Grand Prizes at the ASCRS and ESCRS congresses. Outside his interest in cataract surgery, Osher has been a proud coach of more than 70 youth baseball and basketball teams – reaching the National Championships in each sport – and has published 17 children’s stories, raising money with the proceeds for local and national charitable organizations.
