Virtual reality simulation offers residents the opportunity to practise the skills they've learned through traditional teaching methods and improve their ability to master complex and delicate skills. Simulation allows for the addition of a nearly unlimited variety of devices and interventions so that orientation or training can keep up with the ever changing field of medicine.
John Cook, Simulution president, stated: "The PhacoVision simulator represents the state-of-the-art in surgical training-simulation. We believe this represents an important step forward in medical education."
PhacoVision was developed in Sweden by Melerit Medical AB. The validation for the simulator was developed, studied, and published by St. Eriks Eye Hospital, a division of the Karolinska Institute.
Based in Prior Lake, Minnesota, Simulution develops and distributes simulators, curricula, and other value-added services for medical and surgical training programmes. Simulution offers medical device manufacturers the opportunity to sponsor advanced medical training techniques.
