ACADEMIA redefines the landscape of scientific gatherings, focusing on immersive Wet Labs and workshops designed to provide candidates with a personalized, one-to-one learning experience. Our unique approach ensures that each candidate receives dedicated instruction from an expert instructor, facilitating a seamless transfer of skills from mentor to learner. Our commitment extends to offering candidates ample time to practice surgical techniques comprehensively, under the close supervision of their instructor, covering every step from A to Z. This year, ACADEMIA shines the spotlight on two critical Wet Labs: Phaco from Incision to IOL Implantation and DSAEK from Preparation to Implantation.
