Peut-on réapprendre à voir quand on a perdu la vision ? | Cynthia Qian | TEDxUmontreal
Dr. Cynthia Qian presents two revolutionary methods to help people with inherited retinal diseases to regain their vision.

Video Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (JCRS)
The Video Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (JCRS) is a monthly, preeminent, peer-reviewed medical journal covering refractive and lens-based optical surgery. JCRS has maintained its status as a prominent forum for original research, review, and evaluation of refractive and lens-based surgical procedures for more than 30 years.
The JCRS is the official journal of the International Society of Refractive Surgery, a partner of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. In addition, the medical community journal has been deemed the official journal of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) and the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS).
The journal is published by Healio and features high quality articles on all aspects of anterior segment surgery. In addition to original clinical studies, the journal features a consultation section, practical techniques, important cases, and reviews as well as basic science articles.
JCRS is written with anterior surgery specialists in mind; however clinical studies, techniques, and cases offer invaluable tools for ophthalmologists across sub-specialties.
Practical, clinically valuable articles provide readers with the most up-to-date information regarding advances in the field of refractive surgery. Begin to explore the Journal and all of its great benefits such as:
• Columns including “Translational Science,” “Surgical Techniques,” and “Biomechanics”
• Supplemental videos and materials available for many articles
• Access to current articles, as well as several years of archived content
• Articles posted online just 2 months after acceptance

The EyeSi Simulator Walkthrough
As a team of ophthalmologists, ophthalmology residents, and medical students here at the University of Calgary, we are dedicated to exploring and developing simulation-based learning endeavours in surgical ophthalmology.
In this project, we provide walkthrough videos of the levels of the VR Magic EyeSi® Surgical simulator. A staple in many ophthalmology training programs, the EyeSi® system provides virtual modules to practice surgical skills in cataract surgery. However, there are no specific walkthroughs and tips provided by the simulator in completing each individual level. Hence our library of over 100 videos on Youtube® include individualized advice and narration on video walkthroughs on how we approached each level, and our final scoring as well. We hope these videos help ophthalmology residents in completing all the levels in the EyeSi® cataract simulator, that will translate directly into real-life operating room success!
This free and accessible series of videos has been designed to meet the educational needs of ophthalmology residents learning how to perform cataract surgery and associated complications on the VR Magic EyeSi Simulator®; it may also serve as a teaching resource for reference by ophthalmology faculty. It would also be helpful for medical students who wish to visualize various ophthalmic procedures for their interest and also explore current simulator training.
In watching the walkthrough videos, viewers will be able to:
- Understand the goals and objectives for each level in the EyeSi® Cataract Simulator
- Utilize the videos in our series to appreciate the core mechanic and manuevers necessary for scoring well for each level in the EyeSi® Cataract Simulator
- Learn the skills important for, and the stages that comprise, the cataract surgery
No login or registration required – simply visit our YouTube® channel with this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO4LAhNd3KE6ZKOKUCwqYRQ, or type “Ophthalmology Simulation Explorer” in the search bar of Youtube®.
All of our videos are open access.
