Surgeons use robot to operate inside eye in world first
Surgeons normally attempt this by slowing their pulse and timing movements between heart beats, but the robot could make it much easier. Experts said the robot could enable new, high-precision procedures that are beyond the abilities of the human hand. This is the first time a device has been available that achieves the three-dimensional precision required to operate inside the human eye.
Speaking at his follow-up visit at the Oxford eye hospital, Father Beaver said: “My sight is coming back. “I am delighted that my surgery went so well and I feel honoured to be part of this pioneering research project.”
