To assist beginners in the microsurgical practices of handling instruments and tying knots before using an animal model, the authors suggest the use of colored beads. These beads will diminish eyestrain and secondary fatigue. Also, working with colored beads might be a little more amusing and enjoyable for beginners in learning microsurgical techniques during preliminary studies to achieve the necessary orientation for working under the operating microscope.
