Welcome to the First Online Course in Refractive Surgery

This is the first time that such a project is being carried out. New educational tools have made it possible to perform courses like the one you are going to attend, in which we offer the full knowledge on a topic with multimedia access and all the scientific background that could be necessary to receive the adequate education on a topic that, so far, has received little academic attention.
The University Miguel Hernandez with the Division of Ophthalmology has created this online course aiming to provide access to education in refractive surgery to all those ophthalmologists interested in acquiring the skills that are necessary to educate, create opinion and adequately practice the selection of patients and the selection of techniques for the practice of refractive surgery.
Refractive surgery has made an evolution towards practice and with less interest in formal education. Residency training programs do not include refractive surgery in any part of the world as a subspecialty that is necessary in the education of ophthalmologists. However, refractive surgery is the end point of processes such a corneal graft, has to be used in pathological processes such as keratoconus and indeed is the demand of many patients who aim to improve the quality of life and to achieve spectacle independent in any age of their lives.

This is why in this course you will find the method to learn refractive surgery from the opinions of the investigational and practice group led by Jorge Alio at the University Miguel Hernandez and VISSUM Instituto Oftalmologico de Alicante. My group and I have been the pioneers in many surgical techniques, both at the cornea, intraocular and have written hundreds of papers on the topic and indeed in the allied areas of cataract- lens surgery and corneal Surgery. This is why you will receive not only education in refractive surgery but also in these allied areas as to perform refractive surgery adequately you have to know well the art and the practice of cataract and lens extraction and also to use the tools of cornea surgery to solve problems of refractive surgery and, conversely, to use tools of refractive surgery to solve corneal problems.
We hope that in this integrated course you will find everything that is necessary for you to raise your level of knowledge to the adequate one to be an efficient refractive surgeon from your education as general ophthalmologist.
Please remember that is not a practical course. You need to get the practical skills using wet labs and attending clinics in a practical fellowship, in which you can see on a first line level, first class surgeons performing the different surgical techniques that are dealt with in this course.
Welcome to this course and indeed to the experience to be a refractive surgeon.
