Training Course

SEE surgeons use a procedure called Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) to treat many patients. It’s a quick, self-sealing and fast-healing technique that allows our volunteer teams to perform twice as many surgeries than other manual procedures. Because MSICS is usually only used in areas with limited access to medical equipment, it’s rarely included in traditional ophthalmic training — which is why SEE has been training humanitarian surgeons in the procedure since 2006.

MSICS experience is required for most international programs. We offer two levels of training: Level 1 Intro and Level 2 Fieldwork.

Level 1

Level 2
