2018 Bausch + Lomb Surgical Mentor Resident Program Recap

The 2018 Bausch + Lomb Surgical Mentor Resident Program was held at different dates throughout the Tampa, Florida area this past year, with the purpose of educating second- and third-year ophthalmology residents for their future careers. The program provided a direct look into the manufacturing of precision IOLs, personalized instruction from leading ophthalmic surgeons and even allowed residents to observe a live surgery session at the Eye Institute of West Florida.

Bausch & Lomb with Matossian Eye Associates

Some Background

Bausch + Lomb established the Surgical Mentor Resident Program to provide residents with a valuable hands-on educational experience. During the two-day program, residents learned cataract and refractive surgical techniques and tips from some of the nation’s leading ophthalmic surgeons and eye care professionals. The student-to-faculty ratio of 4:1 ensured residents had a personalized and engaging experience as they absorbed the knowledge possessed by their faculty mentors.

What Was Covered

A Direct Look Into the Manufacturing of Precision IOLs – Residents observed state-of-the-art IOL manufacturing during guided tours of the Bausch + Lomb IOL manufacturing facility.

Observation of Live Surgery at the Eye Institute of West Florida – Participants watched as leading surgeons guided them through live procedures during a 3D surgical symposium to observe the latest Bausch + Lomb products in action.

Personalized Instruction from Leading Ophthalmic Surgeons – Throughout the morning, faculty presented case studies and informative lectures on the fundamentals of cataract and refractive surgery techniques that residents could later put into practice during the afternoon “wet lab.”

Full Afternoon of Hands-On “Wet Lab” Experience – In one of the most anticipated activities of the program, residents enjoyed a full afternoon dedicated to practicing what they learned using the Stellaris Elite surgical platform.

Getting to Know Bausch + Lomb

The organization was founded in Rochester, New York in 1853 by optician John Bausch and financier Henry Lomb, and it remains one of the oldest continually-operating businesses in the United States.
