OphthoSim™ Ophthalmoscopy Training & Simulation System is a hands-on simulation system that radically transforms how students learn to diagnose and treat eye pathologies. Its proprietary software and accompanying tools empower students to actively diagnose real-world eye conditions within a simulated environment.


“U.S. 3rd year medical students attempted direct ophthalmoscopy only 11% of the time in which an ocular fundus examination was clinically indicated1.”


  • OphthoSim™ Ophthalmoscope -  Allows students to practice monocular vision and improve their ophthalmoscopic/funduscopic technique
  • Tracked Movements of the Ophthalmoscope - Verifies student progress as the ophthalmoscope’s movements and orientation are tracked by the instructor to complete the learning feedback loop
  • Realistic OphthoSim™ Eye Geometry - Replicates the magnification of lens in the human eye and different clinical conditions


  • OphthoSim™ Content -  Includes training and testing modules to practice and evaluate ophthalmoscopy technique
  • Database of 200 High Resolution Images - Supplemented with detailed text descriptions and some images are pre-annotated for normal landmarks and pathological features
  • Landmarking Function - Allows instructor to highlight specific characteristics of pathologies in the region student is viewing to enhance student-instruction interactions
  • Advanced Quizzes - Increases student capability with randomized realistic clinical scenarios that test both medical and patient interaction skills
  • Easy-to-use Graphical User Interface - Improves viewer retention though immersive full-screen experienceOphthoSim
