Preceyes B.V. demonstrated the PRECEYES surgical System at the 18th EURETINA Congress. Surgeons were invited to test the system and perform a robot-assisted peeling on a model. The 30-minute demonstration involved an introduction to the system and model, a manual peeling trial and a robot-assisted trial. Feedback was collected in a short interview.

This next-generation system is designed to provide increased surgical precision. The system’s safety and viability for intraocular robotic surgery have been successfully evaluated in a first-in-human study.

Prof Marc de Smet MDCM, PhD, Chief Medical Officer said: “The robot can and will play an ever-increasing role in current surgery and enable new surgical procedures. Our PRECEYES Surgical System will provide increased precision where and when it is required by a surgeon, and it is anticipated that it will foster more consistency in the conduct of surgical tasks.”
