Orsi Academy presents the high-end virtual reality simulator Eyesi® Surgical of VRmagic at the facility. With this simulator for intraocular surgery, Orsi Academy expands their training offering for cataract surgery training.
Eyesi simulator

The simulator has been placed by Collegium Ophthalmologicum Belgicum (COB) in collaboration with the Belgian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (BSCRS) and the Belgisch Ophthalmologisch Gezelschap (BOG). It is meant to train residents in ophthalmology to improve their surgical skills through simulation.

The integration of the Eyesi® Surgical into Orsi Academy training programmes provides a new opportunity for unexperienced surgeons. The highly realistic simulation of interaction with tissue in real-time increases trainees’ surgical experience without risk for patients. The pre-installed curriculum consists of repetitive practice of certain modules, which leads trainees step-by-step to proficiency in cataract surgery.

A total of 38% fewer posterior capsule ruptures occurred in cataract operations performed by first and second year residents if they had access to Eyesi Surgical. (https://bjo.bmj.com/content/104/3/324)

 

As an inclusive medical training center, which supports surgical training away from the human patient, Orsi is the ideal setting for simulator training for residents in ophthalmology.

E-Learning

Orsi Academy has its own e-learning platform, centralizing the best of existing educational content and making it accessible for approved users.


Step-by-step videos with explanatory textual information are provided in the video-library next to didactic material. Proctors can push specific content to course participants prior to the course or allow alumni to consult course material later on in their career. Next to these sections, links to a wide variety of discipline-specific literature can be found on the platform.
