Welcome to the MSICS Online Classroom. This project is sponsored by ASCRS and by the Global Sight Alliance.
The MSICS Online Classroom is directed to disseminating the best information on how to perform manual sutureless small incision techniques in a global setting. This technique which has been popularized by many ophthalmologists and programs in India and Nepal has proven itself to be an efficient, high quality, low cost alternative to phacoemulsification and in many cases is the preferred method for cataract removal. We believe that any modern cataract surgeon should be well versed in both phacoemulsification techniques and manual small incision techniques.
We hope that you will find a comprehensive compendium of tips and techniques here that will propel you quickly to becoming skilled at this very impressive method of cataract removal. We ask for your contributions of videos, lectures, papers and for you to join our discussion groups in an effort to make this venue the best place for any surgeon to come.
