Masterclass and Wetlab Sunday, May 18, 2014
This year the topic of the masterclass is corneal surgery. The masterclass consists of lectures presented by corneal specialists Prof. Harminder Dua, Prof. Farhad Hafezi, and Dr. Martin Leyland and by veterinary ophthalmologist Prof. Teresa Pena. The lectures cover a range of topics including corneal repair, keratoplasties, corneal crosslinking and corneal surgery in the dog and cat.
The wetlab will give the participants the opportunity to learn hands-on in a structured way under the guidance of two experienced instructors, Prof. Harminder Dua and Dr. Mark Watts. Four procedures including corneal gluing, fine needle diathermy, suturing of corneal lacerations and penetrating keratoplasty will be taught.
There will be two groups of wetlab participants. The masterclass lectures are designed to be complementary to the hands-on lab and therefore all wetlab participants will have the opportunity to hear the masterclass lectures.
