Tanya Kowalski

Meeting:  2022 RANZCO


Date:      -

Session Title: OTHER

Session Time:      -

“Misperception” is a stop motion animated short film that puts a fun spin on the trainee ophthalmologist’s journey through learning cataract surgery for the first time. Join the Lego registrar as she discovers that micro- surgery takes more manual dexterity than just playing video games; take a trip down memory lane of practising your capsulorrhexis on organic edibles; and discover the impact that virtual reality surgical simulation has on improving the surgical outcomes of both patients and fruit. Nostalgia guaranteed.
