ESASO Anterior Segment Academy (ASA) is now on its fourth edition.
It’s the second in a series of three on hypermetropia. We have chosen to offer our programme as a series in order to continue our training pathway in anterior segment diagnostics and surgery.
Correcting hypermetropia is in fact much more complex than myopic vision correction, as the range of correction in diopters is more restricted and the possible complications are more serious.
In cataract surgery, there are challenges in relation to limited spaces that make the results more difficult to achieve. The biometrics are more unpredictable, and there is a correlation to glaucoma. These patients present a further challenge, since they have often had good eyesight, at least in childhood, without needing glasses.
