Sixty-eight year old Edna Thornton requires an eye drop administration. She has been prescribed steroids by her doctor to help calm the redness and itchiness caused due to allergies.
This VR simulation for administering an eye drop is designed to help healthcare practitioners practice the procedure in a safe and controlled virtual set up with a virtual patient. With both training and assessment modes, learners can perform the procedure and assess themselves on their performance.
- Demonstrate standard technique of positioning patient for eye medication administration
- Demonstrate proper method of administering eye medication
- Educate patient on proper aftercare instructions

Core Skills Training
Eye Drop Administration
As a part of this Eye Drop administration procedure the user is required to confirm the identity of the patient and enquire about any previous steroid administration, any allergies or ongoing medications. The user will also inform the patient about the procedure and what to expect from the drops, including the many accompanying side effects and when to get in touch. Having informed the patient, the user will check the details of the drop and administer it to the patient. The procedure is designed to help learners practice interacting with the patient and performing the procedure smoothly.
With prompts, guidance and affordances learners are hand-held through the process to practice the procedure in a virtual environment with a virtual patient.
