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.
