    Chris completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    Myself and my husband took this course together at a time when he was preparing to have cataract surgery. While I understand that it's really aimed at clinicians, this course answered so many questions for us and helped us to identify the right questions to ask before and after the procedure. We both found it immensely interesting as well as reassuring and enlightening.
