Specif­i­cal­ly cov­er­ing sutur­ing tech­niques and focus­ing on poten­tial com­pli­ca­tions and meth­ods of man­ag­ing, and impor­tant­ly pre­vent­ing, them.

This dry lab ses­sion pro­vid­ed the YOP’s with the chance to prac­tice their tech­nique on the lat­est inno­va­tions in syn­thet­ic eyes, specif­i­cal­ly designed for the pro­ce­dures prac­ticed upon them.
