Training of Cataract and Vitreoretinal Surgery
Eyesi Surgical is a virtual reality simulator for intraocular surgery training. The simulator platform can be equipped with interfaces for cataract and vitreoretinal surgery. Software modules provide the actual training content. The training tasks range from basic skills training through to training of surgical procedures and complications management. The practical training on the simulator is complemented by introductory online courses on the VRmNet web portal

The Eyesi cataract courses include surgery training modules for
capsulorhexis, hydrodissection, phaco, irrigation/aspiration, and IOL insertion as well
as complications management. Abstract simulation tasks repeat and reinforce
microsurgical motor skills, microscope handling, proper pivoting at the incision, and
understanding of spatial boundaries..
During virtual surgery, cataract instruments such as forceps, visco cannula, cystotome, and phaco probe are available. An OR machine interface and a two-axis phaco foot pedal allow controlling fluidics. Trainees must select appropriate phaco parameters in order to safely and effectively complete a surgical procedure.
For training of posterior segment surgery, the Eyesi Surgical platform
can be equipped with a vitreoretinal interface set. The OCULUS SDI®/BIOM® hardware mimic
is operated just like a real BIOM in the operating room, and the complex interactions of
auxiliary optics are accurately reproduced. Residents learn depth perception in the eye,
precise usage of instruments, and correct OR machine settings.
Vitreoretinal training modules available for Eyesi Surgical include posterior hyaloid detachment, peripheral vitrectomies, internal limiting membrane peeling (ILM), the removal of epiretinal membranes, or the treatment of retinal detachments with oil or gas endotamponades.
