Ophthalmology and a Board Certified Ophthalmologist and Surgeon with over
40 years experience. He has received many clinical awards
including Top MD, Super Doctor, and Top Doctors of South East Texas, Castle
Connolly of 2013.
Dr. Mein has been a wonderful asset to the OPS
Educational Programs with well attended and well received lectures at numerous
OPS meetings. An OPS Lecturer for us since 2011, Dr. Mein will
present videos of Vitreo-Retinal Surgery. These will
include techniques for Pars Plana Vitrectomy, EpiRetinal Membrane
Peeling, Retinal Detachment Repair, The McCannel suture
technique for repair of a posteriorly dislocated IOL, and many other
interesting surgical cases.
is ideal to educate both photographers and technicians who are often asked to
image patients prior to or post-operative to retinal surgery, but who rarely
accompany the physician to assist with surgery. Attendees will observe through video demonstrations the complex
microsurgical manipulations used in posterior segment eye surgery.
surgical videos are therefore a key component to provide a complete
understanding of many forms of eye diseases and their management.
At the end of
this course, students will be able to list several retinal surgical procedures
and describe in general terms how they are performed and appreciate the
complexity of imaging an ophthalmic surgical procedure.
