1805: curriculum lesson 21: anterior vitrectomy

The next lesson in our 25 part curriculum series is focused on performing an anterior vitrectomy. You can see the entire curriculum series here. This series is designed to take a young ophthalmologist in training through the process of learning cataract surgery starting from the beginning. With 25 lessons in total and each lesson being 30 to 45 minutes, there is a significant time commitment, but I assure you that it is well worth your time. I suggest doing one lesson every week (over 6 months) or every other week (lasting 12 months). Today’s lesson is truly critical: learning to perform an effective anterior vitrectomy so that when you encounter a capsule rupture with vitreous prolapse, you will be able to rescue the case and produce a good outcome for your patients.

  1. All these are fabulous vids and extremely helpful. Would you be able to remove the age restrictions from YT videos? It would be very helpful and much appreciated
    Thanks a lot, Professor!

    1. Unfortunately, I cannot remove the age restrictions from YouTube. These are imposed by YouTube and I have no way of bypassing them!
