Our Innovative Education

Wet Lab Facility

Our surgical and educational technologies aim to revolutionize not only patient care, but also how we teach eye surgery to our residents and even to more experienced surgeons hoping to acquire new techniques. 

OphSET is home to a new six-station state-of-the-art wet lab facility with an additional instructor station. In the wet lab, trainees can access the latest surgical technology for a lifelike surgical training experience, with expert surgeons providing instruction in instrument manipulation and surgical technique.

The wet lab training environment is one of the tools at the core of OphSET. A central aspect of the wet lab is to simulate operating room conditions so that the student can experience anatomical conditions and use of equipment in surgical procedures. OphSET utilizes a dynamic surrounding, where students can work in three-dimensional stereoscopic vision and collaborate with their colleagues to promote a higher level of learning.
