EGS Surgical hands-on courses

The EGS is pleased to present  Surgical hands-on courses for the 16th EGS Congress in Dublin, 1-4 June 2024.

Participants will have the opportunity to develop not only the technical skill set, but also an in-depth understanding of the role of these procedures in glaucoma care.
