Wet Labs

/Wet Labs

The organization of Wet Labs has always registered a great success in the past editions of the S.I.C.S.S.O. congress: that is why we are again offering young surgeons the opportunity to train using corneal tissues made available from eye banks.

Wet Labs have a duration of 1 or 2 hours; 9 participants are allowed per session, as this is the availability of microscopes. Teacher’s surgery will be shown through a camera set on his microscope.

Participation cost (to be added to the congress registration):
€ 150,00 (VAT included)
