Abstract
Ophthalmology is one of the exciting sub-specialties of medical science with continued change and advancement in the field of investigations (tools) and micro-surgical techniques. Surgical training and transfer of surgical skills of new techniques to ophthalmology residents and newer generations of ophthalmologists is the need of the hour. Unfortunately, surgical training of ophthalmology residents in India and several developing countries in most of the residency programs has not kept pace with these advances. A transformation of the mindset, focus and curriculum of ophthalmic surgery alone can prepare the new generation of ophthalmology residents to be competent world leaders in this field. In the fast paced hi-tech world of modern ophthalmology, this is the least that we owe our trainees.
