Program

On the first day, you are invited to observe live DMEK surgeries in our clinic (Melles Cornea Clinic Rotterdam). In addition, scientific presentations and video presentations will give you a detailed overview on how to approach DMEK. This includes cases starting from preoperative graft selection through intraoperative graft unfolding and postoperative complication management. The latest results and developments in standard DMEK will be discussed afterwards.

The second day starts with examinations of the patients who were operated on the day before. Next, our specialists from Amnitrans EyeBank Rotterdam will give you step-by-step training in DMEK graft preparation. The specialists’ preparation will be displayed on a large screen so that you can follow along step by step at your own microscope.

In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to practice DMEK surgery on porcine and human eyes. The staff will guide you through every step. You can also discuss your own cases in a one-on-one consultation with one of our specialist surgeons.
