Bausch + Lomb, a leading innovator in eye health, and The Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) announce a multi-year collaboration to ensure that trainees and experienced surgeons have access to the latest, cutting-edge equipment as part of simulation training for cataract surgery.

Five Stellaris Elite™ Anterior systems have been installed at the Royal College so that trainees and ophthalmologists can practice their surgical techniques in the safety of a simulation setting using state-of-the-art equipment available in the UK. The systems form part of the Royal College’s simulation suite which is used by 500 trainees every year to master skills before in vivo training, for experienced ophthalmologists to refine their surgical proficiency and for train-the-trainer style tuition.

Fiona Spencer, Chair of RCOphth. Training, comments: “The Royal College of Ophthalmologists has pioneered the use of simulation training at our state-of-the-art skills centre, and we are delighted to have worked with Bausch + Lomb on installing new high-tech equipment. This offers all our members the opportunity to maintain their surgical skills, especially at a time when many trainees have not been able to access training sessions during the pandemic.”

The Stellaris Elite™ Vision Enhancement System is a combined platform intended for the emulsification and removal of cataracts as well as anterior and posterior segment vitrectomy.
