Vitreoretinal surgery is among the most delicate surgical tasks in which physiological hand tremor may severely diminish surgeon performance and put the eye at high risk of injury. Unerring targeting accuracy is required to perform precise operations on micro-scale tissues of the eye. The objective of this project is to develop robotic platforms and intelligent control algorithms to provide a safe bilateral steady-hand eye manipulation for surgeons, which can potentially lead to autonomous surgical procedures. This will in tum enhance patient safety and surgical outcome which can be very beneficial to both patients and surgeons.
