  • Corneal laceration and perforations
  • Scleral rupture
  • Corneal transplantation
  • Keratoplasty à chaud
  • Globe rupture


The microsurgical training modules will be accompanied by lectures. Each participant will have a minimum duration of 14 hours
for extensive hands-on surgeries on the human tissue.

The programme of the first day concentrates on the theoretical background.
In addition to lectures, the secondand third day focus mainly on intensive practical trainings.


This in-depth workshop is addressed to hospital based ophthalmic surgeons and ophthalmologic practitioners
to improve their theoretical and practical competence in a unique manner.

Please note: Due to the extraordinary course setup the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 17 persons.


Approach and method:
The lectures are followed by a step-by-step approach. Assisted with video equipment the course directors will demonstrate
live how to perform the adequate surgical procedure before you will work directly on your own human specimen.

A team of medical instructors will respond to your questions taking your individual skills into consideration,
give advice and personal assistance.

Employees of advanced ophthalmic trainings will assist you with the surgical equipment. To keep concentration on a high level,
several coffee breaks and lunch are included.


Participants from Austria will receive 30 DFP points. All participants will receive a certificate at the end of the course.
