Differences Course

Course Length: 4 Days

Why Learn the differences between Phacoemulsification to MSICS?

The Phacoemulsification to MSICS Differences Course (PMDC) by HelpMeSee is a comprehensive four-day virtual-reality simulation training program.

It focuses on advancing and refining skills in Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) through extensive hands-on experience, offering over 20 hours of practice using the HelpMeSee Eye Surgery Simulator. This course is designed for ophthalmologists proficient in Phacoemulsification who are eager to master MSICS techniques.

Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) is a cost-effective surgical procedure for cataract removal. It involves a larger incision than Phacoemulsification, allowing manual lens extraction. MSICS provides a viable option, particularly in resource-constrained settings, delivering successful outcomes for cataract patients.

For Phacoemulsification surgeons looking to broaden their skill set, mastering MSICS is a valuable endeavor. Surgeons will benefit from learning the meticulous technique required to manually remove the cataractous lens through a self-sealing incision, minimizing complications and improving patient outcomes. MSICS proficiency allows for cost-effective, high-quality cataract surgery, particularly in resource-limited settings where Phacoemulsification equipment may not be readily available. Diversifying surgical skills to include MSICS expands a surgeon’s capabilities and empowers them to cater to a broader patient demographic with varying needs.

Phacoemulsification to MSICS Differences Course Coverage

Our meticulously crafted PMDC is designed to equip eye surgeons with the skills needed to execute the complete MSICS procedure confidently.

The training program emphasizes the distinctive surgical procedures involved in Phacoemulsification and MSICS. This encompasses variations in incision size and placement, creating a larger circular tear in the anterior lens capsule during capsulorrhexis, employing specific techniques for lens extraction, nucleus disassembly, manual irrigation and aspiration of cortical material, and the typical placement of the IOL in either the capsular bag or sulcus.
