Following on from the successful Wet Labs at SOE 2013 in Copenhagen, the SOE 2015 Congress will include Wet Labs once again.
The Wet Labs cover predominantly basic phaco cataract surgery aimed primarily at trainee ophthalmologists at the start of their training, or trainee ophthalmologists who need hands on experience in phaco cataract surgery. Intermediate phaco wet labs are also available for more advanced trainees and will allow trainees to practice various techniques such as insertion of iris hooks, |Malyugin rings etc. Wet labs on suturing techniques are also available.
The wet labs are running for two days; Sunday, 7 June and Monday, 8 June. The sessions last for 90–120 minutes and all participants have their own work station fully equipped with microscope, phaco machine and audiovisual aids to assist the instructors and attendees.
The course directors and senior instructors are Dr. Khiun Tjia and Dr. Nic Reus from The Netherlands, who are assisted by a number of experienced wet lab instructors from different countries.
Please note that places will be available on a first-come first-serve basis. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Wet lab registration is only accepted in conjunction with a registration to the SOE 2015 Congress. Wet Labs can be booked when participants register for the Congress
