KITARO DRYLAB is an epoch-making tool to improve your surgical skills by repetitive practice at the desk of table.

  1. Think of progress in playing tennis or the piano, daily repetitive practice is indispensable to becoming a master if the art. Is also applies to the surgical skills.
  2. With KITARO you can improve your surgical skills by practicing phaco surgery repeatedly on the desk.
  3. For beginners, learning everything with Wet Lab is very complicated. We believe that the most effective learning process is 1st to learn instrument manipulation with KITARO DryLab, and 2nd to learn machine operations with KITARO WetLab, and then an actual operation.



Inventions & their Functions of KITARO DryLab (KITARO incorporates the five inventions (Patent.P)

  1. Anterior Capsule Film
  2. Segmented Plastic Nucleus
  3. Polymer-Clay Nucleus
  4. Artificial Cornea & Sclera
  5. Oculomotor Device and Mask


Function of KITARO DryLab (You can learn with KITARO DryLab)

  1. CCC technique
  2. Nucleus Segmented technique 3 types
  3. Phaco Chop/ Pre-Chop technique
  4. Self-sealing wound construction
  5. Instrumentation


Roles and Effective ways

Role 1. For education in surgery and self-learning of young physicians

Learning from a good instructor and self-learning from text books using KITARO lead you toward becoming a master of surgery.

You can readily practice surgical procedures with KITARO anytime anywhere, through which you can make as much efforts as you desire to master surgery.


Role 2. For surgical step-up and the introduction of new techniques (instruments) for general practitioners.

General surgeons can improve their surgical skills with KITARO. Also, general practitioners can experience new techniques and instruments before their introduction into clinical practice, through which they can ensure safety on actual application to the human eye.


Role 3. For the training of university students and residents

Students and residents undergoing training at a university hospital can readily experience virtual cataract surgery and become interested in ophthalmology, which is effective to recruit medical staff.

In addition, KITARO may be useful for instruction in surgical procedures at academic meetings and workshops, and for manufacturers and dealers to demonstrate their phaco machines, IOL, and instruments.



KIRAO WETLAB is a high-quality tool to practice with Phaco machine, superior to Animal eyes wetlab.


KITARO WetLab`s Superiority to Animal Eyes

  1. Simple Preparations

KITARO wetlab setup only takes 1minute.


  1. Hygienic

Free from virus infection and rot.


  1. High Quality

KITARO`S artificial cataract lens has higher quality than the usual nucleus and anterior capsule prepared for animal eyes, enabling high-quality surgery simulation, including CCC creation, nucleus manipulation (holding, dividing, rotating and emulsifying of the nucleus)very similarly as on the human eye.

However, in respect of the impossibility of posterior capsule rupture, KITARO is second to animal eyes.


Smart Learning and Teaching with both KITARO Kits

Tool for Surgical Simulation very similarly on the human eye, superior to porcine wet lab.

Smart tool with mock instruments and drain system.


  1. Artificial Cataract Lens (All Phaco Techniques, Complication Management)
  2. CCC
  3. Grooving & Dividing
  4. Phaco Chop
  5. Prechop
  6. Emulsification & Aspiration
  7. Capsule Rupture Management
  8. IOL Insertion


The Artificial cataract lens of KITARO WetLab has the high-quality nucleus, cortex, anterior capsule, and posterior capsule. You can experience 3 types of nuclei varying in hardness Soft, Medium hard and Hard. You can practice almost all steps in Phacoemulsification such as CCC, all nuclei segmentation techniques, and even IOL insertion, very similarly on the human eye.

In addition, posterior-capsule rupture and nuclei dropping may occur, which allow you to practice intraoperative complication management.



  1. Artificial Cornea (Self-Sealing Wound, AK (LRI), Suture)

The high-quality artificial cornea same as the human cornea in thickness (500µm thick at the center and 700µm thick at the periphery) provides a realistic feeling of instrumentation. You can also practice self-sealing wound construction, AK, LRI, and Suture.
