Training will be delivered face to face in Leeds (venue to be confirmed later this year). Under the direction and supervision of expert tutors surgical trainees will perform safe surgical interventions. There will be opportunity to practice and improve basic ophthalmic surgical skills in a safe environment before performing the ‘real thing’ on patients. Use of ‘Thiel’ embalming technique which produces a lifelike surgical ‘feel’ to the tissues.
