We recommend our trainees to do at least 40 cases in a span of 2 or 3 weeks. The training will be step-by-step, first letting u get the feel of phaco probe and then the hang of foot pedals. Foot pedal control is crucial to mastering phaco. To begin with, you will be given trenching. It will really help us if you are pre trained in making capsulorhexis, but if not, do not fret. We are there for you.
We provide We offer you following advantages over others:
1. Personalized training from the master eye doc, Dr. Sanjay Gupta who has done over 20,000 surgeries. We believe that surgery is a skill which can be acquired by doing and not watching or reading (which will also form a strong part of training) and skill acquisition comes only with practice.
2. Flexibility of training program. We are not rigid unlike other branded institutes. We understand people coming from other countries are making a lot of sacrifices and they do not get long leaves.

It has a fully furnished air conditioned room with all modern amenities and an attached bathroom.
