Sharper view of eye surgery
from University of Illinois
Imagine needing to perform a surgery looking through the tunnel of a microscope. You need to manipulate your surgical tools within the space of a pea or less, and there’s no tactile feedback. You also need to use both feet to control certain features of your equipment. It’s not a task that you’d want to perform on a live patient for the first time, is it? This need to hone fine skills before treating patients underlies the creation of the Cless Ophthalmic Surgical Training and Simulation Center housed in the Eye and Ear Infirmary.
