Image simulation of lateral view during cataract surgery

We would like to introduce a simulation of the side view of cataract surgery devised by the director of our clinic.
You can operate photoshop format files (PSD files) on the monitor screen.
The size of all items is unified so that 0.02mm becomes 1 pixel.
All instrument images were taken by the director of our hospital’s instruments.
The anterior segment cross section is a standard cross section created from anterior segment OCTs of multiple Japanese adults.


How to use

Click the photo to see the enlarged JPEG file.
To operate, download the PSD file and open it with image editing software such as Photoshop*.
You can perform intraoperative simulation by moving and rotating the instrument and overlaying it on the anterior segment image.
You can move the digital scale to measure any distance.

*You can open it online without installing anything by visiting the site
First, right-click on the “PSD file” on this site and “Copy link address”.
Then select “Open More” from “File” of photopea, select “Open from URL …” and paste the address in the box.
