Ophthalmic Operation Vienna is a joint project of the Vienna University, School of Medicine, Department of Ophthalmology and the Vienna School of Graphics.
It describes and illustrates the five major ophthalmic operations.
The target group are medical students and practicing ophthalmologists who do not perform surgery.
The DVD should also be of interest to amateurs, who would like to attain lively information about the described operations.
The five major ophthalmic operations are presented in three views:
One being the surgeon's view, the other represents the view of a bystander, and the third view is a 3D-view.
Most effort was put into the 3 dimensional view, since the entire eye was accurately designed upon real measurements.
There are pre- and postoperative clips, as well as the demonstration of all instruments used.
The DVDs are bilingual in English and German.
Two DVDs were needed to hold the large amount of data.
4 different styles of presentation (synchronized and multi-angle) for 5 operations:
1. surgeon's view (microscope)
2. bystander's view (spectator's view)
3. 3D-animation (animated schematic sequences)
4. triple view (surgeon's view, bystanders's view and 3D-animation on one
and the so-called director's cut, showing the best sequences of one operation
The complete process of an eye operation is visualized.
is both technically advanced and medically accurate. Eye operations
and the newest operating techniques are presented in the form of videos
and 3D animations.
1 - 3 aspects run individually or parallel and may be controlled together.
The third view is presented as an animated 3D sequence of a shematic cut-open
Furthermore, an option for switching to video sequences showing the classical
complications is available at some of the critical steps of the operation.
Apart from the videos, explanations are available as sound files (english
and german versions).
The sections pre- and post-operation show diagnosis
and the healing process and are documented with slitlamp photographs/videos
