A haptics and virtual reality simulator for cataract surgery is presented. As a computer-based surgical training platform, this simulator provides realistic haptic feedback as well as vivid 3D visualization. Simulations of a series of surgical tasks and exercises are implemented, including micro-dexterity, eyeball balancing, corneal incision construction, phaco sculpting, lens cracking and lens quadrants removal. Novel algorithms for recreation of visual and haptic effects as well as physics simulation encountered in cataract surgery are presented.
