Paper Abstract

We have developed a simulator for phacoemulsification cataract extraction. In the current project, modules for clinical evaluation were developed. The system was structured into a processing computer and an administrator interface and a trainee interface. The simulation is defined by administrator adjustable parameters and trainee adjustable parameters. The parameters may be categorized as session characteristic parameters, patient characteristic parameters and trainee characteristic parameters. The simulation is measured in variables. Further an air bubble generator was created. We believe that simulator training in future will be required for becoming cataract surgeons.
