Dear friends and colleagues
We are more than happy to announce you that the 10th Thessaloniki Vitreoretinal Summer School live and hands on training is back in 2021 August 30 to September 04 in Thessaloniki, Greece
The most difficult task we had these years is to stay safe. Now vaccinated, we are trying to start again.
Vitreoretinal training in 3d, treating cataract complications, fixing scleral lenses and so many other surgical manoeuvres hands on.
Virtual reality is not a substitute and we are looking forward to continuing a tenth year of TVRS hands on training.
Our website, tvrs.gr is again open for registration (in first-come-first-served order) for a limited number of participants since we have a fixed amount of surgical oct-ngenuity-true to life surgery cataract complications treatment and vitrectomy latest evolution machines. This way we can really hope to succeed in knowledge transfer from a great faculty international team.
Looking forward to see life action again!
Athanasios Nikolakopoulos, TVRS dir.
