Everything will be under supervision of prof B. Gilger.
Capacity is limited, don´t miss the opportunity to register!
Second wet lab will be held in the same time, on Sunday, September 10th and will be given by dr Doug Esson, ACVO, from Califormia, US. Topic is glaucoma surgery - gonioimplant. We have opened this wet lab last year in Toulouse and because of nice feedback and your interest was bigger than wet lab capacity, we decided to open it once more. You will have an opportunity to implant Ahmed valves and explore hot tips of glaucoma surgery.
Again, capacity is limited, don´t wait and register!
