GENEYE background.jpg
We devote time for unstructured and deliberate practice. We care for ourselves first, so that we can serve our patients better. 

We are a group of individuals who aspire to learn in  new and different ways. Ophthalmic Surgery is our game.  We range from medical students to the most advanced and experienced consultants. We aspire to improve. We identify with progress, access the latest technology, and invite the most compelling speakers. We improve through collaboration. We allow ourselves opportunities to learn from our mistakes in positive environments. 



Aspire to improve but can’t find the time? Sick of lectures and dull power-point slides? Can’t stay awake? Want to learn through doing, by immersion, by experience? YES? Then GENEYE is for you!

Future events will be listed here soon.
