1006: Playlist: Indian Surgeons

Our ophthalmology colleagues from India have brought a high degree of expertise to cataract surgery. Over the past decades, I have learned so much from them and they have transformed the way that cataract surgery is performed worldwide. The development of Small Incision Cataract Surgery (SICS) is a good example and it has transformed the way that low-cost, safe and efficient surgery can be brought to millions of people. This playlist features 6 videos from expert Indian cataract surgeons and each will give you some great pearls that will help in your own practice.
