Orbis and Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital Illuminate the Path to Better Eye Care with Digital Training Hub

Blindness and visual impairment are dark realities for many, but Orbis and Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital in Delhi are shining a bright light on the issue with their state-of-the-art Digital Training Hub (DTH). This cutting-edge facility offers healthcare professionals the tools they need to improve their ophthalmic care capacity, including simulation training, tele-mentorship, hands-on training, and more.

The DTH is a shining star in the fight against avoidable blindness, with state-of-the-art technology including a modern wet lab, artificial eyes, and virtual reality setup, all expertly guided by a knowledgeable faculty. By merging digitization, simulation, tele-education, telemedicine, and hands-on training, the DTH is creating a future filled with highly skilled ophthalmologists, ophthalmologists-in-training, and ophthalmic nurses.

The DTH offers a wealth of training opportunities, including Sandwich Fellowships, Observerships, and Hospital Based Trainings. These programs, delivered through a blended learning approach, provide healthcare professionals with the skills and knowledge they need to tackle even the toughest challenges. The Remote Surgical Mentorships offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn from global experts during live ophthalmic surgeries. Meanwhile, the simulation training offers a chance to put skills into practice, with training available on glaucoma, cataract, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, and more, all using cutting-edge artificial eyes.

Orbis’s telemedicine platform, Cybersight, also plays a critical role, delivering courses, webinars, facilitating virtual case discussions, and connecting healthcare professionals with experts from around the world.

“The Digital Training Hub is a shining beacon in the fight against avoidable blindness, providing access to quality eye care for underserved communities,” said Dr. Umang Mathur, CEO of Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital. “Orbis and Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital have been working tirelessly for over 20 years to overcome this challenge, and the DTH launch is just the latest example of their unwavering commitment,” added Dr Suma Ganesh, Chairperson of Pediatric Centre of Excellence & Director of Pediatric Ophthalmology at Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital.
