Vision Outreach International with the help from SEE international offers a Manual Sutureless Incision Cataract Surgery course hosted by Dr. Diego Mejia and his staff in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. This course allows the busy Board Certified Ophthalmologist a chance to either learn or brush up on their technique over an extended weeked. The plan is to arrive Thursday evening and leave on Sunday afternoon after post-ops. This will give the ophthalmologist 2 full days of cases and practice under the guidance of an expert in the technique.
