‘Lower Lid Blepharoplasty-Entropion-Ectropion Oculoplastic Surgery Cadaveric Dissection Course’ was performed in Bahcesehir University School of Medicine on February 19th, 2017 with the participation of 20 ophthalmologists. Lower eyelid anatomy, the lower eyelid entropion-ectropion surgical techniques, subciliary incision and transconjunctival approach to lower eyelid blepharoplasty, complication prevention and management methods are shown on the fresh frozen cadaveric eyelids. The surgical microscopic images linked to the master operation table have been recorded. The stages of the lower eyelid cadaveric dissection are presented together with details of the anatomical folds to the congress participants through video images.Cadaveric workshops as a primary modality of simulation based surgical skills training have been used for a few years in Turkey. Cadaveric dissection training in oculoplasty confers greatest benefit to the surgeons, despite disadvantages of tissue loss and form, degeneration of anatomical key points, diversification in the structure, lack of experience in live tissue tonus and bleeding. Also there are difficulties in providing cadavers and expense.
We believe that cadaveric dissection is the gold standard technique for surgical skill transfer in eyelid surgery.

Usually we use different kinds of contact lens to perform vitrectomy. The contact lens changing during vitrectomy is tedious and labor consuming. To facilitate more efficient vitrectomy, we developed a contact lens universally substituting all kinds of contact lens for vitrectomy. The liquid lens could be put flat and served as a plano or concave contact lens. While tilted, it became a prism contact lens. With different angle of tilting, it can be used as a prism contact lens with a designated prism diopter. It could also be used under gas tamponade. While doing vitrectomy, the liquid contact lens could be applied all the way without changing. Universally, this unique liquid lens can replace plano, concave, 15-degree prism contact lens, 30-degree prism contact lens, and 45-degree prism contact lens for vitrectomy.
