Incorporating modern training into a busy clinical schedule is ever more important. This webinar will demonstrate ways in which this can be achieved and will look at the importance of its application to new problems arising from intra-ocular lens design. Some of these problems relate to so-called premium lenses and how relevant their use is in routine cataract surgery.

This webinar will also highlight Mr Benjamin's involvement in helping to develop teaching and training methodologies in Ophthalmology, especially in simulation training for Ophthalmic surgery. It will go on to address the issues encountered from modern intra-ocular lenses and how training and simulation can help to overcome some of these. 

During this session you will:

  • Know the history of modern Ophthalmic surgical training
  • Understand how modern training can be implemented in each Ophthalmic unit in the UK
  • Value the importance of including training in the weekly work schedule for all staff.

Opportunities for questions will be given after the talks.

A certificate of attendance and CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live.
