Residency preparing addresses the support point and establishment for any subspecialty preparing in medication. The ophthalmology residency program in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia is a very much organized program that was laid out over quite a while back and it has developed stunningly from that point forward. The program is a joint four years' skill based-educational plan where occupants pivot for the most part in licensed tertiary eye care hospitals. The essential goal of the residency program is to graduate profoundly equipped ophthalmologists who are fit for diagnosing and overseeing different visual illnesses medicinally or potentially precisely. Realizing that ophthalmology is a fragile specialty that requires fine smoothness, elevated degree of careful preparation is obligatory to assist with limiting difficulties.


Ophthalmology, Eye care.


Waterfall medical procedure is the most well-known technique performed by ophthalmology occupants during their preparation. In the United States, Rowden et al. revealed that 73% of the inhabitants began their waterfall medical procedure learning venture by performing Extra Capsular Waterfall Extraction (ECCE), though 24% started with phacoemulsification. Nevertheless, 63% of the US programs commanded learning ECCE first.3 Learning waterfall medical procedure is testing where Binenbaum et al. detailed that one of every ten occupants confronted trouble in learning waterfall medical procedure and 80% of their careful experience happened in the third year [1].

The evaluation of the procured careful abilities during residency is one of the significant areas important to guarantee inhabitants' capability and patients' wellbeing. This can be accomplished by intently observing the occupant's careful execution subjectively by working under the oversight of senior specialists and quantitatively by finishing a sufficient number of cases notwithstanding assessment of the careful result. Randleman et al. exhibited that occupants were bound to have complexities in their initial eighty cases 4; in this way, the base required number of waterfall cases to be finished prior to moving on from our preparation program is 80.1.

These days, careful preparation utilizing reenactment has become fundamental for fledgling ophthalmology residents, as a matter of fact, wet-labs and careful test systems might be viewed as ideal preparation stages since they permit occupants to encounter different intra-employable circumstances that might be useful to in working on their mental judgment and sufficient administration of complications.6 In the United States, 98% of careful preparation programs give careful practice offices, like microsurgery research facilities. Besides, 64% of the projects executed a proper microsurgery-showing course, and 45% required assessing the occupants' careful abilities prior to endeavoring the first intraocular procedure [2]. Similarly, our program requires the culmination of a one-week waterfall involved course where junior inhabitants are prepared in settings imitating genuine circumstances by working on goat and counterfeit eyes.

An electronic review planned by the examination group on the Survey Monkey site was utilized to gather information for this cross-sectional review that designated 126 (109;86.5% guys and 17;13.5% females) ophthalmologists who moved on from Riyadh Ophthalmology Residency program somewhere in the range of 2002 and 2012. The alumni ophthalmologists were welcome to partake in this concentrate through messages and electronic online entertainment stages. Secrecy and namelessness were kept up with and guaranteed all through the whole review period. To expand the reaction rate, the study was detest and a subsequent call was done to act as a wakeup call [3].

The semi-organized review survey comprised of 13 inquiries that recorded segment information and asked about post-residency further preparation (association, connection or any extra careful preparation) and practice. Members were interrogated concerning their criticism in regards to their gained careful abilities during residency and how well they were ready to rehearse exhaustive ophthalmology. Likewise, a committed segment managed the skill of graduates in playing out the systems that are all among the prerequisites of residency preparing and whether they are as yet rehearsing these strategies in their ongoing practice (close to their current subspecialty) [4]. The reason for ineptitude or absence of training was additionally noted. Different strategies the respondents wished they had the chance to master during residency preparing were additionally reviewed. Moral endorsement was looked for from the Institutional Review Board of College of Medicine, King Saud University [5].


The gathered information was traded to Microsoft Excel 2010 (Microsoft Co., Redmond, Washington, USA). Information was made due, cleaned and coded then imported to SPSS variant 22.0 (IBM Inc., Chicago, Illinois, USA). Distinct examination was done where mathematical qualities were introduced in frequencies and rates while persistent factors were introduced as mean (±SD). Inferential investigation was finished utilizing Chi 2 test. A certainty span level was set to 95% where a relating p esteem edge was distinguished, as 0.05 where any result p esteems underneath 0.05 would be deciphered as a mark of measurable importance.
