Welcome to the First Online Course in Refractive Surgery

This is the first time that such a project is being carried out. Following the success of the first period of the Course which along 6 years has been followed by over 400 ophthalmologists, the On-Line Course starts its SECOND PERIOD, fully renovated.

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 insufficient 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 SECOND PERIOD of the On-Line Course you will find the method to learn refractive surgery from the opinions of the clinical research and practice group led by Jorge Alió at the University Miguel Hernandez and VISSUM Instituto Oftalmológico de Alicante. Our 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, several books, multiple book chapters in the allied areas of Refractive, Cornea and Lens 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 Second Period of our Online 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.

Welcome to this course and indeed to the experience to be a refractive surgeon.

Dan Zoltan Reinstein, MD, MA(Cantab), FRCSC, DABO, FRCOphth, FEBO, CertLRS, PGDip CRS (U.K)
Professor Reinstein is a GMC registered specialist in ophthalmology in the United Kingdom, equally certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

He is a subspecialist in cornea and a formally trained specialist in refractive surgery. In his clinical practice at the London Vision Clinic in London/UK, he combines extensive post-doctorate fellowship sub-specialty training in cornea, external diseases, refractive surgery, ophthalmic ultrasound, and ultrasound bioengineering with his extensive experience as a research scientist. His special interests include the systematization of surgical technique and the assessment and correction of the complications of refractive surgery.

Professor Reinstein is the former Chief Medical Officer of LASIK Vision Corporation/Canada. During his tenure, the company grew to be not only the largest provider of laser vision correction services in the world (performing over 100,000 procedures per year) but the first large refractive surgery multi-clinic system with a full outcomes and safety tracking system. Professor Reinstein was responsible for the training and quality control of a body of 58 staff surgeons operating in 31 clinics in both Canada and the USA under standardized protocols largely defined by his research on the safety and accuracy of LASIK. In addition to these responsibilities, Professor Reinstein has performed over 20000 refractive surgical procedures and regularly teaches his techniques to surgeons internationally.

In scientific research, Professor Reinstein has led the development and use of the ‘Artemis’: A 3-D very high- frequency (VHF) digital ultrasound scanning system that for the first time can provide thickness measurements of individual corneal layers as well as ocular dimensions of the anterior segment with one-micron precision. He has developed and pioneered the use of this technology with a focus on studying the healing responses within the cornea and analysis of the complications of corneal refractive and intraocular lens implant surgery. Because the Artemis VHF ultrasound technology can determine the exact anatomical basis for surface corneal irregularities it provides unique information for the analysis of the optical complications of refractive surgery. The integration of epithelial thickness profiles, stromal surface shape, and residual stromal bed have led to an unprecedented level of measurements that are currently being utilized for the experimental customization of corneal laser refractive surgery and has enabled the repair of many cases in which no other possible solution appeared possible. The Artemis’ ability to measure internal ocular dimensions (angle-to-angle and sulcus-to-sulcus) also promises to greatly improve the safety of refractive phakic intra-ocular lenses; custom sizing of phakic IOLs promises to become the standard of care worldwide. He is also working on algorithms for new intra-ocular lens power calculation in cataract surgery that will incorporate measurements of the true anterior-chamber depth to the zonular and sulcus plane and lead to much higher refractive accuracy applied to the new field of Femto-cataract surgery.

Professor Reinstein had held appointments as an Honorary Consultant Ophthalmologist and Senior Research Associate in the Department of Ophthalmology, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, Kings College, London, under the pioneer developer of the excimer laser used for refractive surgery, Professor John Marshall. He also held the position of Assistant Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology and Research Director of Refractive Surgery at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York. Professor Reinstein was appointed full Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Paris VI, France, and has an ongoing appointment as Professeur Associé at the Centre Hospitalier National d’Ophtalmologie des Quinze-Vingts, Paris, France’s national ophthalmological referral center where he consults with Professor Laurent Laroche. He was appointed Adjunct Professor of Ophthalmology at Columbia University, New York in December 2010. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (UK). He was appointed Visiting Professor of Ophthalmology, Biomedical Science Research Institute, Ulster University, Northern Ireland in July 2015, and achieved a distinction in the Postgraduate Diploma in Cataract and Refractive Surgery (Theory).

Concurrently with his medical career Professor Reinstein has been playing the saxophone for 35 years including two years of study on a performance scholarship at the Berkley College of Music, Boston, USA, and he is continuing to play jazz on a regular basis in the UK but also worldwide on any given occasion.

ONLINE OPHTHALMIC LEARNING IN ANTERIOR SEGMENT SURGERY

May 6, 2020
Professor Jorge Alio

“The educational goal of e-learning is to not to replace conventional hands-on experiences but to improve the quality of refractive surgery training worldwide, since learning is a non-stop process”.

We have an educational objective, and some of the benefits of online learning, among many others, include enhanced communication flexibility and course effectiveness, something so important today in the field of education.

In this age of vast technological development, the learning process no longer needs to occur at the same time and place. Of course, presential teaching has the advantage of emotionality and closeness created between the educator and the student; E-learning, on the other hand, has proved to be advantageous in many other ways, in a society where time is a value, and the costs for the displacement can be too high and unprofitable. Online platforms permit teachers to become more available and also, more affordable, especially in our global educational environment.

Our success is supported by more than 400 satisfied student-colleagues, who talk highly in words of gratitude for the Course.

In order to work on the issue of emotional proximity and increase the feeling of closeness, each one of the lessons has been developed through audio-visual materials, in most of the cases with the class and the soundtrack produced entirely by Prof. Alió himself. Even the evaluations of the clinical cases will be discussed through soundtracks to create an environment of communication with you, and to reduce the coldness and lack of emotionality of the usual online formats.

Through the platform that the  Forums provide, you will have the opportunity to express opinions, to ask questions, to answer the ones raised by your fellow colleagues of the course, and also, receive feedback regarding your doubts, in the same way as you would have done in a presential class. Remember that it is not only the face-to-face contact factor which makes the learning process active per se but mainly the employed methodology to make spontaneous interaction through the Forums and our continuous attention. The lack of emotionality typical of Online teaching is in part compensated by learning strategies that are applied to this course, including neuro-educational values, teaching supervision in the evaluations, and tutorials when needed or convenient.

The knowledge acquired in this course did not only prepare an outrageous number of experts for becoming better refractive surgeons but have improved simultaneously the whole ophthalmologic sphere, with outstanding scientific papers and publications based on the relevant topics regarding Refractive, Cornea and Lens Surgery.

There are two possibilities for the ophthalmologists interested in the course: 

  1. Colleague-students that have an MD Degree received in Spain.
  2. And those that have obtained their MD degree elsewhere around the world.

The course is the same – in terms of contents – although there are some differences regarding the required documentation that has to be followed in order to be validated according to Spanish official academical standards. You can find all the needed information below, where we make a clear differentiation between the two versions: THE SPECIALIZATION COURSE – the one for our MD international fellows, and ESPECIALISTA UNIVERSITARIO – for the MD Spanish members. 

According to your situation, please access the correspondent information by clicking on the button + info, that will redirect you to the courses’ outlines, where you will be able to find more specific information about the objectives, contents, course staff, and also the way of registering our course. At the registration process and any moment, you will be advised and guided in every step by our experimented administrative assistants! 

Regardless the origin of your MD degree, you will obtain an official University Certificate that qualifies you as an Academic Expert in Refractive, Cornea and Lens Surgery. The University Miguel Hernández Authorities will issue this certificate.

Enclosed to this you will have a Course Director Certificate as well, that will show in more detail the contents that you have undertook during the course, signed by the Course Directors.

Also, for those who are not  interested  in taking  the full length of the course, but only some specific modules , independent individual certificates can be issued by the Course Director after the required applicable Module evaluation*.
