This year’s YES Advanced Cataract Training in New York was a great success with more than 150 attendees. Attendees experienced an intensive weekend training program that included didactic/video case presentations, a hands-on wet lab, and roundtable discussion breakout sessions. The meeting was designed for residents, fellows and surgeons in their first five years of practice.
Program chairs for YES ACT included Eric Donnenfeld, MD, member of the ASCRS Executive Committee; Sumit “Sam” Garg, MD, chair of the ASCRS YES Committee; and Elizabeth Yeu, MD, advisory chair of the ASCRS YES Committee.
YES Advanced Cataract Training attendees were excited about using the cutting-edge equipment in the wet lab, as well as meeting with some of the top ophthalmologists in the world in an intimate roundtable setting where they could ask questions, and benefit from their knowledge and experience.
