3D TV for Slit Lamp Training
Allied ophthalmology health professionals are increasingly responsible for clinical duties and care for our patients. It’s vital they are well trained.
Examination using a slit-lamp is the most fundamental aspect of eye examination. It is a complex skill – often taking a long time to train and become proficient. Using a slit lamp camera can teach basic skills in a matter of hours rather than weeks or months. BEH has a 3D slit lamp camera system which already has excellent feedback from allied health professionals, junior doctors, medical students, and others. The connection of this to a relatively inexpensive 3D television permits innovative, high definition, immersive training.
Patients can also benefit from this TV as they can watch back recorded videos of their examination to understand their eye condition better.
