On the Sunday 5th of Jan 2020, we conducted a PG update on Complications and management of Manual SICS. Our Chairman of Globe eye foundation D Sundar Ram Shetty, who is an authority on Manual SICS surgery was the Bandmaster of the event. He involved the postgraduates totally into the program explaining the intricate steps of surgery and giving tips to avoid complications through videos of surgery. From instrument handling to managing the complications at each step of surgery Dr Sundar Ram Shetty gave his experience pearls to the upcoming surgeons. His unique style of approach and making complex techniques of surgery simpler helped all of the audience to understand better the knowledge of SICS. Ultimately it enabled us to know where we were wrong, where we can go wrong and how to handle deviations confidently in Manual SICS.
