Over 50 eye surgeons specializing in cataract and refractive surgery attended a Surgical Skills Program at the Macdonald Hotel, Piccadilly, Manchester. The training session, for surgeons based in Manchester and surrounding areas, was hosted by Rayner.
The program was chaired by Professor Michael Amon, with training delivered by Professor Brian Little, Allon Barsam, and Rakesh Jayaswal.
Rayner has created the world’s first IOL trifocal that can be implanted after cataract surgery. A trifocal lens splits the light coming into the eye and allows the wearer to appreciate vision at three distances – near, intermediate, and far. The Sulcoflex Trifocal IOL offers, for the first time, a choice to become free from the infuriating dependence on glasses for near vision activities for post-cataract surgery patients.
Rayner is launching a national media campaign that will stimulate desire for presbyopia correction with Sulcoflex Trifocal, the world’s first trifocal supplementary IOL.
“The Surgical Skills Program is designed for surgeons to be trained by leading refractive surgeons on the Sulcoflex platform and trifocal technologies,” Saima Khokhar, Head of Eye Science Rayner, said in a company news release. “We are delivering a strong educational program throughout the UK and all surgeons who attend will be listed on Rayner’s new patient website as a Sulcoflex Trifocal accredited surgeon.”
