MIGS Wet Lab for Surgical Skills

A Micro Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) wet lab will run at the Sight For Life Foundation Training Lab, Sydney Eye Hospital, on 26 May and again in September.

The course has been developed by Drs. Colin Clement (NSW) and Frank Howes (QLD), with assistance from Drs. Nathan Kerr (VIC), Graham Lee (QLD) and David Manning (NSW).

Dr. Clement said the course was first run in 2017 to address the emergence of many new techniques for surgically treating glaucoma. “With so many MIGS available, and given the complex nature of glaucoma and its management, there was a need to better understand each of the MIGS and where they should be used within the glaucoma treatment algorithm.”

The goal of the MIGS course is to provide surgeons with an educational track across a one-day program that includes didactic presentations, video presentations, as well as MIGS hands-on training. The course objectives are:

With so many MIGS available, and given the complex nature of glaucoma and its management, there was a need to better understand each of the MIGS and where they should be used within the glaucoma treatment algorithm

1. Provide a comprehensive understanding of MIGS indications, therapies and trends

2. Enhance knowledge and skills in emerging areas of Trabecular Micro-Bypass, Suprachoroidal Micro-Bypass and conjunctival access therapies

3. Develop and practice surgical skills and capabilities with specific wet-lab/dry-lab and hands-on training.

The courses, which are sponsored by Glaukos Australia, will be run at the Sight For Life Foundation Training Lab, Sydney Eye Hospital. RANZCO has awarded CPD points for Clinical Expertise, Level one, at a maximum of seven points per day.
