Earlier this year, Preceyes, the spinoff company of Eindhoven University teamed up with Oxford University and Nightstar to advance the development of their eye surgery system.
"Preceyes and the University have agreed to conduct an investigator-led clinical study, assessing the clinical functionality and applicability of the device. The focus of the study will be on high-precision vitreoretinal surgery which will facilitate future targeted drug delivery.
Preceyes' high-precision robotic system targets ocular surgery, with vitreoretinal surgical procedures as the initial target market. The technology promises to improve the delivery of existing ocular surgery as well as enables the development of new treatments such as high-precision drug delivery, assisting eye surgeons in performing the most demanding surgical tasks."
Last week, the system successfully performed its first dozen human clinical trials. More to come!
