In Reply We thank Chidambaram and Goh for their correspondence. They state that simulation has been successfully implemented in surgical training to enhance procedural outcomes across many fields. To our knowledge, there have not been any published reports in ophthalmology or general surgery combining such well-established procedural simulation with human factors training in an immersive environment as described in our study.1
