Haag-Streit UK has announced the launch of the Eyesi Slit Lamp Fundoscopy Module in the UK.
VRmagic’s new Fundoscopy Module can be mounted to the Eyesi Slit Lamp simulator table to enable a lifelike interaction. It is supported by comprehensive software offering a wide selection of cases for retinal examination, which will be continuously extended, according to a company news release.
The new retina cases will form part of the ‘Findings & Diagnoses’ course, presenting diseases affecting the optic disc, AMD, and diabetic retinopathy. In addition, a new tier of the training courseware provides virtual patients with pathologies of the posterior segment, including a detailed clinical case history. These clinical cases are based on real patients and have been reviewed in close cooperation with university eye clinics. Trainees need to specify findings and diagnoses on the simulator’s user interface and will benefit from immediate feedback by the training system.
In order to perform a retinal examination, trainees insert the 90D lens into the slit beam in front of the patient model’s eye and then move it slowly toward the patient until they see a focused image of the retina through the slit lamp microscope. If necessary, the patient’s eyes can be set to dilated to make the examination easier.
The Eyesi Slit Lamp is a high-end diagnostic training simulator for ophthalmologists and optometrists. Its virtual reality technology is integrated into the original hardware of a BQ 900 slit lamp model and simulates all functions of a real slit lamp. Trainees can examine virtual patients with the biomicroscope or a fundoscopy lens.
