Ophthalmologists of the Eye Microsurgery Ward in Osh Interregional Hospital are being trained in phacoemulsification in Almaty (Kazakhstan).
The training is necessary due to a new machine delivered to the Osh hospital, Croma Qube phacoemulsifier. It is the only machine in Kyrgyzstan.
By the end of the course, the specialists are expected to introduce a new technique for surgical operation on the eye in practice.
Phacoemulsification refers to modern cataract surgery in which the eye's internal lens is emulsified with an ultrasonic handpiece and aspirated from the eye. Aspirated fluids are replaced with irrigation of balanced salt solution, thus maintaining the anterior chamber, as well as cooling the handpiece.
