VRmagic was established in 2001 and is a pioneer for virtual and augmented reality technology in medical training. The product range includes the; Eyesi® Slit Lamp and Eyesi® Surgical medical simulators. Distributed in the UK by HS-UK, Eyesi® Slit Lamp is a high-end diagnostic training system for optometrists and ophthalmologists. Trainees can examine virtual patients with the biomicroscope, fundoscopy lens, or gonioscopy lens.
Distributed in the UK by John Weiss & Son, 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, Haag-Streit UK and 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 and the Eyesi® Slit Lamp is integrated in the original hardware of the Haag-Streit BQ 900 slit lamp.”
Dean continued, “Both HS-UK and John Weiss are delighted to gain Exclusive UK Distributorships for these pioneering products. These are the first medical simulator products to be added to each company’s gold-standard portfolios and we are thrilled to be expanding our offering for ophthalmologists and ophthalmic surgeons in the key field of medical training.”
