IOL Clinix-Art & Science of IOLs in 3D on 19th-20th April 2014
Through this CME, we attempted to understand in depth and decode the various designs of intraocular lenses. We started with the ‘Science’ on the 19th with a series of didactic lectures by prominent international and national faculty. We dealt with the ‘Art’ the next day with informative and entertaining video presentations on basic and advanced surgical techniques, by people who are masters in their field. Many of these videos were in 3D to give the participants a realistic feel of the surgeries being demonstrated.
