Capsulorhexis Workshop - 1 June 2021 (Webinar)

Capsulorhexis Workshop - 1 June 2021 (Webinar)
The aim of this workshop is to help trainees refine their capsulorhexis techniques, using both forceps and a cystatome. Each break out session will be tailored to meet the needs of the trainees in that group. Topics that will be covered will include: - Top tips for using forceps to commence and complete a capsulorhexis - How to accurately size your rhexis - Little rescue manoeuvre skills. Trainees will require access to a bench top or operating microscope which can be linked to a phone, tablet or laptop. Videos of such set-ups will be available on the College section of the Simulation Gallery.

This webinar is open to ST1-ST3 trainees.
