Phacoemulsification makes the cataract operation easier for the patient but involves a demanding technique for the surgeon. It is therefore important to increase the quality of surgical training in order to shorten the learning period for the beginner. This should diminish the risks of the patient. We are developing a computer-based simulator for training of phacoemulsification. The simulator is built on a platform that can be used as a basis for several different training simulators. A prototype has been made that has been partly tested by experienced surgeons.
