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

Human tissue (cadaver) that makes this course unique: it´s not frozen or
modified in any way and not older than 24-48 hours.

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.
