HelpMeSee has launched its next-generation simulation-based training for phacoemulsification. With instructor-led sessions and haptic feedback, this first-of-its-kind eye surgery training creates an immersive experience with the look and feel of surgery in a human eye, without risks to patient safety. Today, more than 100 million people are blind or visually impaired due to untreated cataracts and a lack of access to care.
“With an ageing population worldwide, the need for more surgeons trained to perform cataract surgery is great. As we work to fight global cataract blindness, we are thrilled to launch HelpMeSee’s simulation-based training for phacoemulsification,” said Saro Jahani, President and CEO, HelpMeSee. “This instructor-led training offers the most versatile eye surgery simulator in the world. It provides a less experienced ophthalmologist the opportunity to practice surgery until he or she gets it right, and a more experienced ophthalmologist the opportunity to practice until he or she simply cannot get it wrong.”
“HelpMeSee has a beautiful mission – to cure blindness – and an approach to simulation-based training that delivers a unique, immersive experience,” said Tristan Bourcier, Ophthalmic Surgeon and Professor of Ophthalmology at Strasbourg University Hospital in France. “The training intersects three key things: an instructor, who is a trained and experienced surgeon, that is coaching you every step of the way; a powerful simulator and an eBook that is rich in assets for learning.”Click below to share this article
