Strabismus is a difficult education point in pediatric ophthalmology. With the development of virtual medical technology in recent years, it becomes an effective tool for education of strabismus in pediatric ophthalmology. We used desktop, immersive virtual reality system and augmented reality system, with helmets and 3D displays to vividly display the teaching points such as squint eye position and stereoscopic vision through specific visual stimulation image software, which is convenient for students to operate and experience. These virtual medical technologies is significant for improving the level of pediatric strabismus education. (Ophthalmol CHN,2018, 27: 395-397)
