ophthalmic surgery simulator course

The courses with the EyeSI simulator of ophthalmic surgery are organized by the Department of Ophthalmology of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra and are carried out in the Simulation Center of the Faculty of Medicine.

Surgical simulation based on virtual reality allows to increase the performance and efficiency of the time spent in training and ensures an adequate level of safety for the patient.

Training by means of surgical simulators is not only designed for people in training, but experienced surgeons can also try new maneuvers or improve their abilities to solve complications.

The EyeSI simulator recreates a high-quality three-dimensional virtual image of the intraocular structures through the eyepieces of the surgical microscope. It has surgery modules of the anterior and posterior segment.

A virtual instructor quantitatively assesses the quality of each surgical maneuver and provides a detailed report on the achievement of the objectives.

Upon completion, you will be provided:

  • Detailed and quantitative report of the tasks carried out, the progression in the fulfillment of the objectives, the time spent and the level reached in the module.
  • Certificate issued by the Simulation Center of the Faculty of Medicine and the Ophthalmology Department of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra. It will specify the module performed, the level reached and the total time spent in practice with the simulator. The certificates of the cataract surgery courses will also include the endorsement of the SPANISH SOCIETY OF IMPLANT-REFRACTIVE OCULAR SURGERY (SECOIR).

The courses are individual. An instructor will attend the student, specify the objectives to be met and will be available for consultations throughout the practice with the simulator.

Take advantage of the recent update of the Eyesi 3.0 Software: improvement in the three-dimensional perception of structures, graphic improvements for greater realism of surgery, and new courses in cataract and retina surgery.


The opening hours of the Simulation Center are Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Within this schedule, you can distribute the hours of the course according to your preference and availability of places:

  • 5-hours course.
  • 10-hours course.
  • 20-hours course.
