From modest and conventional surgical techniques in early eighties, now it has become high-tech surgery with least indoor stay and excellent visual outcomes. Microincision surgery in both anterior and posterior segments, corneal and lenticular refractive surgery, modern keratoplasty techniques, pediatric and strabismus surgery, oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery and stem cell transplantation have entirely changed the scenario in ophthalmic surgery today. Modern ophthalmic surgery is a vast subject. It is important for ophthalmologists to master various surgical steps in the ophthalmic surgery procedures of their interest. There are very few quality international Surgical Techniques in Ophthalmic book which can teach and guide the ophthalmologists to master various surgical techniques properly.

Purpose: To describe the pediatric ophthalmology surgery activity in private or public practice in metropolitan France in 2016 and to anticipate training needs in surgical pediatric ophthalmology. Methods: We used the French National Health Care System database to identify all pediatric ophthalmology surgical procedures carried out in 2016. The study investigated the entire population aged 14 years and younger that had undergone ophthalmologic surgery. We calculated the incidence of surgeries per 100 000 inhabitants 14 years of age and younger performed by ophthalmologists, the number of surgeons doing these surgeries, the mean age of these practitioners, and the number of surgeons older than 55 years. Results: In 2016, the overall incidence of pediatric ophthalmic surgery activity was 150.42/100,000 children aged 14 years and less. Out of 17,657 pediatric surgeries included, 31.3% were done by private surgeons performing at least 20 surgeries per year, 45.9% in public centers performing at least 20 surgeries per year and 22.8% of the procedures were achieved by surgeons (public or private centers) doing less than 20 surgeries per year. This analysis included 204 surgeons, with a mean age of 41.7 ± 11.2 years (60.8% female) in the public sector and 51.0 ± 9.5 years (37.3% female) in private practice. More than a third of the surgeries (37.7%) were performed in children aged [6-11] years, and the most frequent procedure was strabismus surgery (42.1%). University regions with the fewest surgeons and regions with surgeons older than 55 years of age were identified, anticipating the need for training new surgeons. Thus, within 5 years, in order to maintain surgical activity, it will be necessary to train 46 surgeons for regular pediatric ophthalmic surgical activity. Conclusions: This study demonstrated disparities in the geographic distribution of pediatric ophthalmic surgeries in France and identified regions that need increased training capacities and/or incorporate new surgeons to ensure a sufficient number of surgeons.
