"Can I do Phaco On a Mission trip? I would love to learn MSICS, but where do I get the training?"

So you'd love to go on an international eye care mission trip- a cataract surgery mission.  But, you only know Phaco...And you don't have a portable Phaco unit. You've always wanted to learn the MSICS procedure and you've seen Geoff Tabin and David Chang discussing the comparison of outcomes using these two approaches. 

If you're ready and willing to learn a new procedure than Vision Outreach International can get you great MSICS training so you won't need to use Phaco.

Here is a link to a Dr. David Chang video for ophthalmologists who are considering learning MSICS.
