5. Anterior vitrectomy

Please read the below which is VERY important from Rob: 

1.       Just like the last few years, we'll have three stations.  One dry-lab for capsulorhexis practice and lens loading and two wet-lab stations with phaco systems.

2.       Again, these are "for human use" systems.  They can only be used with Kitaro eyes.  While the systems are there, they absolutely cannot be exposed to any animal or cadaver eyes.  Doing so would render them no longer usable on human subjects per FDA regulations and the University would be responsible for replacing them.

3.       Also, this time, we'll have MST instruments for IOL explanting and intraocular suturing on June 9 that you can try at side stations. There may also be ICL implantation available too.
