Product Features

Eyesi Cataract Simulator

  • For training of anterior segment surgery the Eyesi Cataract simulator is equipped with a cataract surgery interface which includes a head with a cataract eye interface, the cataract instrument set, footpedals and the corresponding system software.
  • Can be configured easily for superior or temporal access to the patient's eye; the cataract eye is prepared for corresponding incisions.
  • Offers extensive training of the capsulorhexis. It even allows for the training of complications so that trainees master what to do when the rhexis runs outwards.
  • The phaco training modules offer a safe environment to experiement with phaco machine settings and to explore the effects of parameter changes. In practical terms this means a trainee can cause unwanted events like surge and chatter and learn how phaco parameter adjustments can eliminate these occurrences.

Eyesi Vitreoretinal Simulator

  • For training of posterior segment surgery the EYESi Vitreoretinal platform is equipped with the vitreoretinal surgery interface which consists of a head with the vitreoretinal eye interface, a vitreoretinal instrument set, foot pedals and the corresponding system software.
  • EYESi microscope renders a stereoscopic view identical to the real OR microscope. The trainee is required to establish suitable visualization via the microscope foot pedal’s zoom, focus, and X/Y controls.
  • BIOM® / SDI® hardware is integrated into the microscope setup.
  • Training sessions include tasks like inducing posterior hyaloid detachment and performing peripheral vitrectomies, peeling the internal limiting membrane (ILM) or the removal of epiretinal membranes.
