LASIK Training Courses
We offer three types of LASIK training courses, in addition to the femtosecond LASIK training course, and the ReLEx smile training course.
Our most popular lasik training course is our intensive LASIK training course. This is a 3 day course, in a group format, which combines lectures, surgical observation, and hands on training. The first day of the course has lectures which focus on an overview of technology around LASIK, including lectures on the excimer laser, corneal topography, microkeratomes, patient selection and counselling, and an introduction to the surgical technique. In addition, there is surgical observation during the afternoon.

The second day of the course focuses on surgical aspects, including surgical pearls, management of complications, both intraoperative and post-operative, and lasik post other refractive surgery. On the third day, we focus on wavefront and topography customized LASIK, lasik for presbyopia, LASIK alternatives like ICL, and on marketing lasik. considerations. During these last two days of the Intensive LASIK course, there are wet labs, surgical demonstrations and “hands-on” surgical experiences. Depending on their needs and budget, participants can perform LASIK on 2, 4 or 6 eyes during the course.
The Intensive LASIK Course is designed for those eye surgeons who are likely to being performing laser refractive surgery soon, or who have just bought an excimer laser, or who want a quick refresher on LASIK. We have been conducting our intensive LASIK course since 12 years, and more than a 1000 surgeons have taken advantage of the course.
Our second type of LASIK training is a “personalized” training. This type of training is far more geared towards “hands-on” surgery, than on theory. Participants have a choice of performing a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 60 LASIK procedures by themselves in a short time (2 days to a week). In addition, they will get to observe expert laser surgeons performing advanced LASIK procedures. This “personalized” training course is conducted in a “one-on-one” format, where an expert LASIK surgeon mentors the live surgical experience throughout the procedure. This type of “personalized” LASIK training is most suitable for those doctors or their institutions who have just bought a laser or who are contemplating buying a laser, or who have got access to a laser. It is also suitable for those people who want to feel confident about performing LASIK.
We also offer personalized training for those doctors who wish to train themselves for Bladeless LASIK or ReLEx smile procedures. Most doctors currently performing ReLEx smile have been initially trained at New Vision Laser Centers.
Our third type of LASIK training is an one day course on “Advanced LASIK”. This is meant for those surgeons who have been doing LASIK since some time, and who want a quick update on advanced topics in LASIK, including advanced screening techniques, including interpretation of OCT and Pentacam Images, customized treatments (both wavefront and topography), treatments for presbyopia, corneal biomechanics, complications and femto-LASIK. This type of training is conducted in small groups, and is most suitable for eye surgeons who already have extensive experience in performing LASIK.
