Rapid learning curve assessment in an ex vivo training system for microincisional glaucoma surgery

Abstract Increasing prevalence and cost of glaucoma have increased the demand for surgeons well trained in newer, microincisional surgery. These procedures occur in a highly confined space, making them difficult to learn by observation or assistance alone as is currently done. We hypothesized that o...
