Objective Cataract Surgical Training Program

Duration 2012 — 31.12.2015



Project description

This project aims at developing a virtual reality cataract surgical training simulator. HelpMeSee will train Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) specialists using an unprecedented approach to surgical training — an innovative MSICS Virtual Reality Surgical Simulator. The Simulator recreates the human eye in all its visual and tactile details and, used in conjunction with sophisticated courseware, provides an endless supply of virtual eyes and unlimited opportunities for practice without endangering patients. This model can dramatically speed up the surgical training.
