Conclusive: 50% Reduction in Live Cataract Surgery Errors with HelpMeSee Simulation-based Training

Cataract Surgery Simulation Training

HelpMeSee offers instructor-led Cataract Surgery Simulation-based Training with the HelpMeSee Eye Surgery Simulator.


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

The course provides detailed instruction on the ‘What’ and ‘How’ of performing Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery using the HelpMeSee Eye Surgical Simulator to reach competence in the performance of this procedure.

Phacoemulsification Simulation-based Training Course (PSTC)

The Phacoemulsification simulation-based training course navigates you through each intricate stage of the procedure – from the initial clear corneal incision to the emulsification of the nucleus, the implantation of a foldable intraocular lens, and the final closure of the surgery through wound hydration. The course emphasizes the development of hand-eye-foot coordination, vital for deftly maneuvering instruments during intraocular surgery and manipulating ultrasound energy via a foot pedal on the HelpMeSee Eye Surgery Simulator.

Suturing Simulation-based Training Course (SSTC)

The simulation-based training suturing course is designed to build cognitive knowledge via an interactive eBook and insightful discussions led by a certified instructor. Once you’ve gained cognitive knowledge, you’ll develop psychomotor skills on the HelpMeSee Eye Surgery Simulator, learning how to flawlessly pass a needle through eye tissue and tie that perfect knot to seal a tunnel.

Complications Management Course (CMC)

This cataract surgery Complication Management Course leverages the power of the HelpMeSee Eye Surgery Simulator and feedback from a qualified instructor to enable the trainee to develop the surgical skills for managing cataract surgical complications. Learning is achieved using a standardized, and immersive instructor-led curriculum which provides a rich, interactive learning experience.

Phacoemulsification to MSICS Differences Course (PMDC)

The Phacoemulsification to MSICS Differences Course (PMDC) focuses on advancing and refining skills in Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) through extensive hands-on experience, offering over 20 hours of practice using the HelpMeSee Eye Surgery Simulator. This course is designed for ophthalmologists proficient in Phacoemulsification who are eager to master MSICS techniques.

MSICS to Phacoemulsification Differences Course (MPDC)

The MSICS to Phacoemulsification Differences course (MPDC) is meticulously curated and guided by seasoned instructors, offering an extensive curriculum to enhance your surgical skills significantly. For MSICS surgeons looking to broaden their skill set, this course is meticulously designed to furnish eye surgeons with the proficiency needed to confidently perform the entire Phacoemulsification procedure. This training utilizes the state-of-the-art HelpMeSee Eye Surgery simulator, realistically replicating every intricate step of the procedure — from trenching and dividing to emulsifying the nucleus.
