Standardized Diagnostic Skill Training
Being able to detect abnormalities during an eye examination is an essential skill for every optometrist. However, the range of diagnostic training available to optometry students may vary depending on available fellow students or patients. The Eyesi® diagnostic simulators for biomicroscopy and ophthalmoscopy can ensure every student receives a broad and comparable training.
Training Simulators for Optometry
Self-Guided Learning on Virtual Patients
The educational concept behind the Eyesi diagnostic simulators is based on self-guided learning using a structured curriculum. Students broaden their diagnostic experience by examining virtual patients, case by case. In a training environment that is vivid and resembles the real-life examination situation, trainees quickly learn to use their tools. Guiding elements and medical information support users in their learning process.
Immediate Feedback and Assessment
All VRmagic simulators provide trainees and educators with objective assessment and skill evaluation at the end of each virtual examination. The simulator summarizes and evaluates key scoring parameters, for example, if the entire retina was examined, if the light exposure was too high, or if an important finding was overlooked.
Comfortable Administration for Educators
Educators can use VRmNet, the online training portal for VRmagic simulators, to comfortably set up users, manage classes, and monitor their trainees’ training progress from any web browser. On stand-alone simulators without a network connection, PDF training reports and user administration features are available on the device itself.
