Background: Meta-analysis research was implemented to appraise the effect of resident participation (RP) in ophthalmic surgery (OS) on wound dehiscence (WD). Methods: Inclusive literature research until April 2023 was done, and 645 interconnected researches were revised. The 7 picked researches, enclosed 4224 OS persons were in the utilized researchers' starting point, 2189 of them were utilizing RP, and 2035 were no RP. Odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were utilized to appraise the consequence of RP in OS on WD by the dichotomous approach and a fixed or random model. Results: RP had significantly higher WD (OR, 1.69; 95% CI, 1.04-2.76, p=0.03) compared to no RP in OS persons. Conclusions: RP had significantly higher WD compared to no RP in OS persons. However, caution needs to be taken when interacting with its values since there was a low sample size of some of the chosen researches and a low number of researches found for the comparison in the meta-analysis.
