Purpose-built, head-mounted 3D display for ophthalmic microsurgery: Surgical skill performance and evaluation: A pilot study
What are the new findings? We highlight the need for purpose-built, head-mounted displays tailored to the specific demands of ophthalmic surgery.
Our paper demonstrates the potential of using head-mounted displays in ophthalmic microsurgery.
How might it impact on healthcare in the future? The widespread implementation of these devices will help alleviate musculoskeletal pain commonly seen in ophthalmologists who operate with traditional microscope.
Digital visualisation devices will allow for enhanced visualisation of the surgical field and digital overlays not attainable with a traditional analogue visualisation.
We demonstrate a collaborative iterative device design approach between clinician users and device manufacturers.
