India's leading medical institute, AIIMS, uses goat eyes to start ophthalmology training for doctors'
The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), India's leading hospital and medical training institute, has started a new kind of ophthalmology training for its doctors.
The RP Eye Centre at AIIMS is teaching doctors' the functional structure and mechanism of human eyes on samples of goat eyes.
This makes AIIMS India's the only medical college to give ophthalmology classes to their postgraduate doctors on goat eyes.
Senior doctors say they decided to adopt this approach, as human eyes were not available. This was causing a delay in classes.
Experts say that goat eyes are cheap and easily available. It is a relatively simple and inexpensive technique to train ophthalmology surgeons using a goat's eye.
There are proper training modules for these sessions. The medical equipment used has a high magnificent depth for clear view.
As part of this training, doctors are learning the medical procedures for cataract surgeries.
