ALCON licenses KRN’s opthalmic simulation technology

Alcon has introduced the Fidelis Virtual Reality (VR) Ophthalmic Surgical Simulator, a portable VR tool that provides haptic feedback to simulate the experience of cataract surgery. The simulator can be used from any location in the world and allows users to invite others to join virtual training sessions. This tool is designed to increase access to surgical simulators around the world and provide realistic, remote surgical training for ophthalmologists, especially in areas where training resources are limited. The Fidelis VR Ophthalmic Surgical Simulator features a VR headset, two haptic engines, an integrated Centurion footswitch, and a realistic virtual operating room environment with Alcon equipment. It also provides real-time feedback and performance tracking to help enhance surgeon technique. The simulator will be introduced at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting in April 2022 and will subsequently be used in Alcon’s Phaco Development program, which aims to improve the techniques and skills of surgeons in underserved communities.
