Welcome to the
CCI Educational Portal

This unique site is designed to facilitate the individual learning needs of Canadian cataract surgeons. It is both a place of open exchange and a place for self-tailored, ongoing education. We invite you to explore our resources and take full advantage of the CCI's original programs and forums.

Who We Are

The Canadian Cataract Institute (CCI) is a peer-driven organization that aims to serve cataract surgeons in their daily work. The Institute was created under the guidance of a planning committee of leading cataract surgeons from across the country. Led by Medical Director Ike Ahmed, the Institute was launched based on a comprehensive needs analysis identifying critical gaps in Continuing Education opportunities for the practicing cataract surgeon.

The CCI web portal serves as a gateway to the institute and benefits the busy practicing professional by providing a one-stop space for cataract surgery educational programs and resources.
