Surgeons Use PRECEYES Surgical System to Perform First Robot-Assisted Eye Surgery

September 15, 2016

In a landmark clinical trial, a team of surgeons at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital led by Dr. Robert MacLaren have performed the first robot-assisted operation inside the eye.

The surgeons used the PRECEYES Surgical System to initiate a membrane peel — a task requiring a high level of control and precision.

Dr. MacLaren hopes that this new system will enable “new operations that currently we can’t do with the human hand” such as gene therapy surgery (which requires ultra-precise surgery under the fovea).
