Surgical Skills Training Course Information Basic Phacoemulsification

Phaco: Management of Complications

This course will provide practical experience in removing a cataractous lens from porcine eyes. Hands-on experience in phacoemulsification, incision/CCC and lens insertion will be provided.

This course includes practice on porcine eyes of the various techniques discussed in the didactic course, including management of white cataract with Trypan Blue and insertion of intracapsular rings. Also included are the various advanced phaco techniques such as vertical chop, phaco slice, stop and chop and hemi-flip.

This course will have one participant at each station

This course will have one participant at each station

Basic Suturing Techniques This course will teach basic suturing techniques for ophthalmic surgery. Participants will have the opportunity to learn suturing techniques both with and without an operating microscope.

Phakic IOLs These courses will allow the participants the opportunity to handle different phakic IOLs and practise several implantation techniques. Phakic IOLs presented include PRL, Artiflex and Verisyse.

This course will have one participant at each station

These courses will have one participant at each station

Bimanual Micro-Incision Phaco This course will familiarise the participants with new techniques of microincision surgery with IOLs implanted through incisions of less than 2 mm. The wetlab will include practice on new ‘cool’ phaco equipment.

PRK, LASEK & Epi-LASIK This course will enable the participants to practise various techniques for handling and removing the corneal epithelium. With the aid of porcine eyes, individual instruction will be given in the use of blade, brush and alcohol, as these tools are applied in PRK to abrade the epithelium prior to excimer treatment. The management of the epithelial flap, which is created in the LASEK procedure, will also be elucidated.The newest refractive procedure, Epi-LASIK, in which a flap is prepared by separating the epithelium from Bowman’s membrane with a special keratome, will also be demonstrated. Excimer lasers will be available for practising surface ablation on the abraded or flap-fashioned porcine eyes.

This course will have one participant at each station

Ferrara Rings, KeraRings and INTACS These courses look at the different types of intracorneal rings, the indications for use, particularly keratoconus, and the different techniques for implantation. The latest nomograms will be presented and discussed.

This course will have two participants at each station

These courses will have two participants at each station

LASIK (Laser In Situ Keratomileusis) This course will familiarise ophthalmologists with the assembly and use of various microkeratomes used to create a corneal flap, with special attention to surgical techniques and management of complications. A variety of microkeratomes and excimer lasers will be available for use by the participants. Each participant will have the opportunity to create corneal flaps and perform excimer laser ablations on porcine eyes. This course will have two participants at each station
