    During the course you will learn about current treatment options for advanced keratoconus. You will attend scientific presentations and observe an examination of postoperative patients. The specialists from Amnitrans EyeBank Rotterdam will give you step-by-step training in Bowman layer graft preparation. Next, the corneal surgeons will perform a Bowman layer transplantation. Both procedures will be displayed on a large screen so that you can follow along step by step at your own microscope.
