THE SOLUTION – SIMULATION-BASED TRAINING
To make the large-scale cataract surgical training of cataract specialists feasible, HelpMeSee has developed an innovative set of instructor-led courses that use the HelpMeSee Eye Surgery Simulator for surgical skill development.
WHY MANUAL SMALL INCISION CATARACT SURGERY?
CATARACT BLINDNESS: A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS
The sad story is that those who are blind because of untreated cataract cannot work. This situation leads to financial hardship, the onset of additional health problems and a reduced quality of life. It can even lead to premature death.
This is a public health crisis that is only likely to get worse if the underlying issues of eyecare delivery workforce development are not addressed.

Brightening the Eyes of a Nation
HelpMeSee partnered with Madagascar’s Ministry of Public Health, and the Polyclinic d’llafy hospital in Antananarivo to launch the Mazava Project. It’s all about training 100 brand new cataract specialists in a part of Africa that’s really in need of cataract surgery and more ophthalmologist professionals.
Read the recent article by The Ophthalmologist which takes a closer look.
The Ophthalmologist dives into the HelpMeSee Simulation-based Training Program which challenges trainees not only in their skill execution, but also in how they handle decision-making, time management, and any unexpected situations. Explore the unique insights about simulation-based training and if it’s life-like visual and tactile realism paired with an instructor-led curriculum will reshape how cataract surgeons learn.
