Ophthalmic surgery is different from other surgical fields as it requires additional skills of hand-eye coordination. Wet lab training helps the residents to master the initial steps of stereoscopic vision, hand-eye coordination and microsurgical skill in a non stressful laboratory setting. This tool is useful to develop self -awareness among trainess, to identify gaps and to eventually improve their surgical skills with a reduced rate of complications. The need to mandate the wet lab in ophthalmology training as a part of the curriculum in post graduate training in India requires serious consideration to improve the cataract surgical outcome.
