Perform phacoemulsification and implant techniques that facilitate cataract-IOL surgery in post-vitrectomized eyes with an open posterior capsule.
I am happy to announce an exciting addition as we continue into our seventh year of Mackool Online CME. This year, with the generous support of several ophthalmic companies, my son Dr. RJ Mackool and I will share the honor of presenting our surgical cases to you. Together we will continue to demonstrate the technologies and techniques that we find to be most valuable to our patients, and that we hope are helpful to many of our colleagues. I will continue to narrate all of the cases, even as we share the surgical duties and thereby expand the variety of the cases that we bring to you. As before, one new surgical video will be released monthly, allowing our colleagues the opportunity to earn CME credits or just observe the case. New viewers are able to obtain additional CME credit by reviewing previous videos that are located in our archives.
I thank the many surgeons who have told us that they have found our CME program to be valuable and instructive; I appreciate your comments, suggestions and questions.Thanks again for joining us on Mackool Online CME.
– Richard Mackool, MD
Richard Mackool, MD, a world renowned anterior segment ophthalmic microsurgeon, has assembled a web-based video collection of surgical cases that encompass both routine and challenging cases, demonstrating both familiar and potentially unfamiliar surgical techniques using a variety of instrumentation and settings.
These high-definition videos are designed to serve as teaching tools.
This educational activity aims to present a series of Dr. Mackool’s surgical videos, carefully selected to address the specific learning objectives of this activity, with the goal of making surgical training available as needed online for surgeons motivated to improve or expand their surgical repertoire.
