No detail overlooked.

We’ve considered every element of the ophthalmic training skills center experience, from microscope quality to student comfort to ease of collaboration.

State-of-the-art simulators. Choose from a range of Haag-Streit Simulation Eyesi ophthalmic training simulators for your academic program. Preinstalled, standardized courses and tools for assessment provide residency programs with valuable means for quality assurance. Training with Eyesi simulators gives both residents and educators confidence in surgical abilities – before entering the OR.

Operating room-level microscopes. We install surgical microscopes with superior optics and functionality, such as the Haag-Streit Hi-R NEO 900, to allow residents to learn the same microscopy techniques that are used in a true operating room.

Wet Lab

Ergonomics. The primary goal of ergonomics in the wet lab is to reduce musculoskeletal strain, which we accomplish through microscope and table design.

Collaborative learning. For easy collaboration among residents, video from any student’s workstation can be displayed onto large classroom monitors, as well as each workstation monitor.

Visual system design. We’ve developed a powerful solution that allows instructors to display individual workstations and annotate for an elevated learning experience.

Custom apps for system operation. For a seamlessly interactive teaching environment, we design a custom app specifically for your wet lab so instructors can freely move about the classroom and impact every student’s learning experience.

Eyesi Surgical Simulator.
High-end virtual reality.

Eyesi Surgical is a high-end virtual reality simulator for intraocular surgery training. The Eyesi platform can be equipped with interfaces for cataract and vitreoretinal surgery. Training units range from basic skills training through to surgical procedures and complications management. Validated training concepts support residencies in integrating the simulator into their program.


Hi-R NEO 900.
First class for every class.

The heart of any wet lab is the microscope itself and only surgical microscopes like the Haag-Streit Hi-R NEO 900 can offer the highly simulated experience you demand.
