Advancement in Technology Makes Clinical Education Without a Real Patient POSSIBLE!

Virtual Reality (VR) Slit Lamp Simulator
This first and only Virtual Reality (VR) slit lamp simulator in Hong Kong provides high resolution and close-to-real experience for students practising their clinical skill sets.

Through video slit lamp setting, supervisors would know what students are looking at. Hence, timely feedback and guidance can be provided for their improvement.

The resourceful system and database in this new simulator allowed students to practice hands-on slit lamp skills more efficiently without recruiting a "real" subject. Furthermore, the robust database will enable students to expose many more unusual cases.

Our teaching team expects that developing new pedagogy with more VR tools would further enhance students' learning experience.

Here are feedbacks from some students about using simulators for preclinical training.

"It can provide guidelines for starting up to practice a new technique. When we are not familiar with certain techniques, we may not know what to look for or perform the techniques."
