Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) Simulation-based Training Course (MSTC)


HelpMeSee’s instructor led MSTC training is an integrated training course that includes the interactive MSICS eBook, facilitated discussions with a certified instructor, and guided sessions that allow trainees to expand their knowledge of the procedure and improve surgical skills through repeated practice on the Eye Surgery Simulator.

The MSTC is a six-day virtual-reality simulation-based training course to develop and enhance MSICS surgical skills with more than 24 hours of practice on the HelpMeSee Eye Surgery Simulator. The course covers all the required surgical steps to complete the MSICS procedure.

MSTC will benefit those interested in developing competency or improving their existing MSICS surgical skills.
