It is not that we wouldn´t miss good old school European onsite meetings, but at this stage we took the opportunity to organize a real international SOE webinar on some of the latest developments within Oculoplastics.

Our presenters – all renowned experts in their field – come from East to West from Singapore, Germany, Belgium, England, Spain and US. They will present short and concisely on dacryoendoscopy in lacrimal practice, strategies for fornix reconstruction and two really hot topics in the management of Graves´ patients. And to make it more lively, there will be a decent slot for orbital case presentations.

This first Oculoplastics – and maybe last – SOE webinar is on the 17 December 2021 and has the following program:

Moderators: Lelio Baldeschi (Belgium); Christoph Hintschich (Germany)
Dacryoendoscopy in Lacrimal Practice – Gangadhara Sundar (Singapore)

The Fellow of the European Board of Ophthalmology- Cataract and Refractive (FEBOS-CR) exam is an initiative of the EBO in collaboration with the ESCRS. The aim of this exam is to put the standards for training the trainers in the subspecialty field of cataract and refractive surgery. This webinar will explain and familiarize the future FEBOS-CR candidates on how to look at videos of complex cataract cases. There are many ways to solve a complex cataract case. The FEBOS-CR candidates are expected to master the different ways to solve a problem. Mastering cataract surgery is also mastering the different surgical options and explain why your choice was the best. The faculty invited in this symposium were all successful in passing the FEBOS-CR exam and were able to convince their jury to be awarded the level of potential trainers in fellowship education programs in the field of cataract and refractive surgery in Europe and abroad. One of the parameters they were evaluated upon was their capability to explain how to deal with complex cataract cases. They will now help you understanding how to pass this exam by preparing a difficult case and explain their surgical strategy to solve the case. At the end of this course, you should return home with the conviction that you too are capable to pass this part of the exam.
