The authors reviewed the role the Eyesi Surgical simulator can play in the surgical education of ophthalmologists. Although some preparative surgical steps cannot be practiced on the simulator, the authors concluded that simulator training is excellent preparation for the first actual surgery, because the skills learned on the simulator can be transferred easily to the real situation. Further, simulator training does much to raise confidence. Together with the assistance of an experienced mentor, Eyesi Surgical provides a valuable addition to a successful entry into ophthalmic surgery.
