Purpose:
The purpose of this study was to test the construct validity of a full virtual reality vitreoretinal training program at the Eyesi Surgical simulator.

Design and methods:
A virtual vitreoretinal training program was composed on the Eyesi Surgical simulator, software version 2.9.2 (VRmagic GmbH, Manheim, Germany).
It was completed twice by three groups:
Group 1: Twenty medical students
Group 2: Ten ophthalmology residents
Group 3: Five vitreoretinal surgeons
The program consisted of six training modules (Figure 1):
Navigation level 2 (Nav2)
Forceps Training level 5 (ForT5)
Bimanual Training level 3 (BimT3)
Laser Coagulation level 3 (LasC3)
Posterior Hyaloid level 3 (PostH3)
Internal Limiting Membrane Peeling level 3 (ILMP3).
Construct validity for a module was obtained if the median score for Group 3 was higher than for Group 2, which in turn was higher than for Group 1.This was tested by Kruskal Wallis test by ranks.

Results:
The participants achieved higher overall score in Group 3 than Group 2 and Group 1 (Table 1).
The same applied to sub score where the participants in Group 3 scored higher than Group 2 and Group 1 in Nav2, BimT3, PostH3 and ILMP3 (Table 1).

Conclusions:
We developed a training program in virtual vitreoretinal surgery with construct validity for four out of six modules and for overall score. This makes the program a useful tool in the training of future vitreoretinal surgeons.
