The purpose of simulating eye surgeries in both anterior and posterior segments is to provide step-by-step instruction to prepare for real ocular surgery. However, this guide cannot replace accurate medical pieces of training in the real environment, but it should be noticed that using this simulation device rapids the process of training, provides residents accurate assessments, also keeps the real patient away, and expertise residents to be as e risk-free expert.
The simulation is comprised of two fundamental parts: Graphical User Interface (GUI) in the touchscreen and the virtual surgical environment, i.e., the Virtual reality (VR).
The GUI allows you to set your customized settings and choose your tools.
The surgical VR is a graphical image of the eye.
In the simulation, you will be able to use the real tools available on the simulation device to take control of the virtual surgery pieces of equipment which are shown in the microscope. The simulation of the device acts in real-time.
The surgical processes are not determined from before and depend on the user’s performance. The behavior of the eye is in process during the surgery in each operation.
OcuSim could be equipped with different software modules. Fundamental training modules are available by default. For example, real ocular surgery modules and some skill promotion practices are accessible by default on the device.
