OCULAR LASER SIMULATION
This new course in ophthalmic laser skills, teaches you the essential skills and knowledge to become a jedi master of the ophthalmic laser!
Designed for ophthalmology registrars early in your training, we teach you the fundamental skills of using the lasers. This practical hands-on course gives you consultant-led training with ample time for practice with high-quality simulation eyes.
No previous experience with using lasers is required – we teach you from the basics upwards.

The course cost is £ 350 – this includes lunch and refreshments.
We limit the number of participants to 10, to maximise the teaching opportunity, and allow sufficient time for practice with each laser modality.
The course is held on the 4th Floor at the Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion, in Edinburgh.
