The panel of speakers included International and National faculties in the fields of Maxillofacial Surgery and Ophthalmology, who are experts in handling Orbital trauma. The first day was a lecture series that covered all aspects of Orbital trauma.
The second day of the program started with a live surgical demonstration of a case of orbital trauma. This was followed by a Hands-on workshop, where skull models with fractured orbital bones and full armamentarium of instruments and implants were given to the participants to have a real feel of surgically treating orbital fractures.
The program received a whopping attendance and the participants were thrilled with the knowledge and experience they gained.
