First Cataract Dry lab at the 2nd HOYA Katarakt Forum

On January 18 VRmagic held the first cataract dry lab at the 2nd HOYA Katarakt Forum in Heidelberg, Germany

At the HOYA Surgical Optics cataract forum participants from all over Germany had the opportunity to train surgical procedures on Eyesi Surgical, a virtual reality simulator. The Mannheim based technology company VRmagic that offers regular dry labs for vitreoretinal surgery for the first time organized a simulator-based dry lab for anterior segment surgery.


The training event for eye specialists, medical assistants, and OR staff was hosted by the Department of Ophthalmology at Heidelberg University Hospital and its medical director Prof. Dr. med. Gerd U. Auffarth. Ten Eyesi simulators were available for the hundred participants. OR staff and medical assistants received an introduction to the different steps of cataract surgery in two dedicated dry labs. Two other dry labs were customized for eye specialists and offered tips and tricks on different steps of cataract surgery. All dry labs consisted of a theoretical part and practical exercises on the simulator.
