Course language: english

During this six-day intensive training course you will be taught the basics of Phacoemulsification and Purslane Vitrectomy in Bregenz (Austria).

In our 27 years of experience we constantly improved the program and we have a dedicated team to share their knowledge, helping the delegates to learn and master the surgical skills necessary to perform their surgery safely on patients.

The course puts focus on a practical hands-on surgery training in the wetlabs, where state of the art machines, hand instruments and disposables are provided and accepted as the best way for surgeons to familiarize themselves with the equipment.
