TrueVision Teams with Ophthalmologists to Help Cure World Blindness for Treatable Cataracts -- Debut of 3D Training Video for Manual, Small-Incision Cataract Surgery
Date:8/13/2009

August is Cataract Awareness Month. TrueVision is the leader in 3D visualization for microsurgery and went to Africa with Mercy Ships and Mission Eyes Network. The first 3D HD video was captured of the "Manual, small incision cataract surgery" for teaching and training in the fight to cure world blindness from treatable cataracts.

TrueVision Systems, the leader in 3D visualization for cataract surgery, has teamed with Mission Eyes Network and the Christian Ophthalmology Society to record for the first time a 3D HD video for teaching and training of the surgical technique called "Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery" (MSICS).

Dr. Glenn Strauss, chief eye surgeon on the Mercy Ships and Dr. Tim Fincher, Ophthalmic surgeon of Dallas Texas, traveled to the Republic of Benin in West Africa equipped with a TrueVision system to record a 3D HD video of the MSICS procedure for training and educational purposes.

MSICS potentially offers an efficient and practical surgical solution to the growing problem of cataract blindness. Similar to the traditional extra capsular cataract technique, MSICS has been shown to be comparable to phacoemulsification in outcomes and for many developing countries has become the preferred technique, especially for advanced mature cataracts. It has shown to be very effective in allowing a high volume, low cost option in an environment of extreme need without expensive, high-tech instrumentation.

Not only are there not enough surgeons trained to fulfill the global need for the high-volum
