Eye Movements in Surgery

At this week’s pre-Christmas Surgical Education Rounds, Dr Bin Zheng discussed “Eye movements in surgery: A literature review” by Hermens et al (2013). We had a great discussion about this very new field of research, considering:

– is it possible to train a surgeon how to look better?

– is ‘proper eye movement’ a basic, intermediate or advanced skill?

– what are the important differences between ‘watching’ and ‘doing’?

– is this only applicable to screen-based surgery, or can it be applied to open surgery?
