Blindness and visual impairment are obstacles that have stood in the way of many, but Orbis and Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital in Delhi are setting a new path forward with their blazing-hot Digital Training Hub (DTH). This innovative facility equips healthcare professionals with the tools they need to reach new heights in ophthalmic care, including simulation training, tele-mentorship, hands-on training, and more.
The DTH is a trailblazer in the fight against avoidable blindness, with its cutting-edge technology including a state-of-the-art wet lab, artificial eyes, and virtual reality setup, all expertly guided by a top-notch faculty. By merging digitization, simulation, tele-education, telemedicine, and hands-on training, the DTH is forging a future filled with skilled ophthalmologists, ophthalmologists-in-training, and ophthalmic nurses.
The DTH offers healthcare professionals a world of training opportunities, including Sandwich Fellowships, Observerships, and Hospital Based Trainings. These programs, delivered through a blended learning approach, provide the skills and knowledge needed to tackle any challenge. The Remote Surgical Mentorships offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn from the best, with global experts providing mentorship during live ophthalmic surgeries. Meanwhile, the simulation training offers a chance to put newfound skills into practice, with training available on glaucoma, cataract, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, and more, all using the latest and greatest artificial eyes.
Orbis’s telemedicine platform, Cybersight, also plays a critical role, delivering courses, webinars, facilitating virtual case discussions, and connecting healthcare professionals with the best minds in the business from around the world.
“The Digital Training Hub is a trailblazer in the fight against avoidable blindness, providing access to quality eye care for those who need it most,” said Dr. Umang Mathur, CEO of Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital. “Orbis and Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital have been lighting the way for over 20 years, and the DTH launch is just the latest example of their unrelenting commitment to better vision for all,” added Dr Suma Ganesh, Chairperson of Pediatric Centre of Excellence & Director of Pediatric Ophthalmology at Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital.
