Patients undergoing eye surgery can now get a virtual reality tour of the inside of their eye before the procedure. The imagery is constructed using a technology called optical coherence tomography. It uses laser light to provide comprehensive imagery.

Doctors at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London used the technique to produce stunning 3-D images of the vessels of a mini-pig eye, winning them a Wellcome Image Award. Watch the video above to catch a glimpse of this new VR experience.
