Training Technology

Dept. of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences resident training on EyeSi surgery simulator

We offer residents a variety of technology and tools to refine skills during their training at the WVU Eye Institute. Some of the program's highlights include:


The EyeSi simulator is a simulated surgical training experience that helps residents perfect their cataract surgery techniques before entering the operating room. It is used to refine surgery techniques, such as controlled hand movements and limited tremors for the delicate procedures ophthalmologists regularly perform.

Additional information

The EyeSi simulator has benefited more than 40 residents since arriving in 2007, and we were one of the first training programs nationally to offer it. You can read more in-depth about the training here.
