EON Reality, together with Dr. Anuradha Khanna’s A Nu Reality, created EyeSim for students to achieve mastery learning through deliberate practice.
IRVINE, CA, January 28, 2015 – EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, together with A Nu Reality announced the release of EyeSim, a Virtual Reality ophthalmic training simulator application, at the AUPO Meeting January, 28th in Tucson, Arizona. EyeSim is designed for educators to use in the classroom for knowledge transfer and for learners to achieve mastery learning through deliberate practice. EyeSim is available on Mobile Platforms, Desktop, Ibench Mobile, Icatcher and Ibench.
Highly detailed models of the eye and ocular structures enable students to explore the eye in intricate detail.
Currently EyeSim features four learning modules: ocular anatomy, pupil simulator, ocular motility simulator, and a visual pathway simulator. Realistic 3D ocular anatomy, with interactive features, allow users to explore the structures of the eye along with supporting animations. The interactive eye examination enables a user to explore pupillary, ocular motility, and cranial nerve dysfunctions in a virtual patient. A visual pathway simulator enables the user to explore how brain damage impacts a patient’s vision.
« Virtual Reality is the next step forward in classroom technology, » said Dr. Anuradha Khanna, Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Loyola University. « Research in many specialties has shown that simulation based medical education combined with deliberate practice enables mastery learning. EyeSim will provide my colleagues with a platform to build a simulation based ophthalmic educational curriculum on, and an opportunity for the learners to achieve mastery learning through deliberate practice in a safe environment. »
The eye exam simulator with a virtual patient enables medical students to gain valuable skills and practice before they even see a patient.
Virtual Reality presents the perfect platform for advanced medical education. Complex concepts can be accurately modeled to facilitate learning and lead to quicker understanding than older two-dimensional teaching aides. By bringing Virtual Reality to medical education, students can get hands on experience and gain valuable practice all without touching a patient or a cadaver.
« Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer allows learners to really engage with their subject matter and interact, » said Mats W. Johansson, CEO of EON Reality. « Learning by doing is a crucial component to mastering a skill whether that be vocational technical skills, STEM learning, or learning to be an ophthalmologist. We’re extremely fortunate that Dr. Khanna lent her twenty years of experience to help us create the most sophisticated eye simulation on the market. In fact, EyeSim shows the power of teaming up with a subject matter expert to develop something truly unique and extremely valuable. »
