NIIOS Academy

NIIOS Academy offers a broad post academic curriculum in advanced lamellar keratoplasty with a focus on (advanced) DMEK (Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty) and Bowman layer transplantation. NIIOS pioneered these techniques, which we continue to develop and use. You can’t get closer to the source than that! Our training programs are suitable for corneal surgeons, general ophthalmologists wishing to specialize, eye bank technicians, and other professionals in the field.

Knowledge at the Leading Edge

The academy’s training is provided by specialists from our organizations NIIOS R&D, Melles Cornea Clinic and Amnitrans EyeBank. That means all our educational activities are always based on the latest and most advanced knowledge, with tips and tricks straight from real-world practice. Program elements vary from DMEK wetlab courses for beginners and early starters or experienced surgeons and advanced keratoconus wetlab courses to fellowship programs and live surgery sessions.
