Couching Today

Video Title: Couching Today


Description:

Couching is the earliest documented form of cataract surgery. Although couching is nowadays routinely practiced merely in remote areas in third world countries, it was a precursor to modern cataract surgery and pars plana vitrectomy.

Couching continues to be popular in some developing countries where modern surgery may be difficult to access or where the population may prefer to rely on traditional treatments

This video shows couching still taking place today, in Nigeria.
