Philadelphia Business Journal (09/13/19) George, John

Wills Eye Hospital's new William Maul Measey Ophthalmic Surgical Training (MOST) Laboratory in Philadelphia is designed to help residents, fellows, faculty, learners of continuing medical education, and select industry partners study and practice fundamental and advanced surgical techniques. The $1.5 million MOST Lab will demonstrate procedures that include phacoemulsification cataract surgery, manual small incision cataract surgery, corneoscleral suturing, advanced corneal transplantation, and minimally invasive glaucoma surgery. Among the facility's features are nine ergonomically designed surgical workstations, each outfitted with operating microscopes combined with high-definition smart screens. The lab also has two surgical simulators and four phacoemulsification units. "It is arguably the best ophthalmic surgical training lab in the world," declared MOST Lab director Douglas Wisner.
