Haptic VR is Transforming Training and Education in Ophthalmology

Today, VR is being used in ophthalmology to enhance training and education around the world and offers multiple physical and cognitive benefits to the users. By combining VR with cutting edge haptic technology, which provides surgeons with the ability to both see and feel a virtual patient, surgeons can train and gain ‘pre human’ competence within a range of ophthalmic surgeries, devices and therapies.

Tissue Sensation Launch

Leveraging full force feedback kinesthetic haptics, high-fidelity graphics and 3D spatial technology, its new soft tissue capabilities allow surgeons to manipulate, feel and explore texture of anatomy as if in the room and opens the door for accelerated skills acquisition in even more intricate procedures; building real capability and confidence ahead of human interaction; ‘Pre-human competence’.
