John Weiss & Son, the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard ophthalmic micro-surgical instruments and procedures, is proud to announce it has secured an exclusive distributorship for the VRmagic Eyesi® Surgical medical simulator.
VRmagic was established in 2001 and is a pioneer for virtual and augmented reality technology in medical training. The solutions developed by VRmagic permit a realistic and dynamic simulation of both examinations of, and operations on, the eye.
The Eyesi® Surgical is a high-end virtual reality simulator for intraocular surgery training, developed for cataract and vitreoretinal surgeons. Through the simulator´s OR microscope, trainees can see the virtual surgical field in stereo and high-resolution, while operating with life-like surgical instruments. The highly-realistic simulation of interaction with tissue in real-time, increases trainees’ surgical experience without the risk for patients.
Dean Johnson, John Weiss & Son MD, commented, “VRmagic joined the Haag-Streit Group in April 2020, however it already had strong, well-established links with the Group; the Eyesi® Surgical’s binocular microscope features mechanical and optical systems from Haag-Streit.”
Dean continued, “John Weiss is delighted to gain Exclusive UK Distributorship for this pioneering surgical simulator product. The Eyesi® Surgical is the first medical simulator to be added to the company’s gold-standard portfolio and we are thrilled to be expanding our offering for ophthalmic surgeons in the key field of medical training.”
