Abstract

Innovations in ophthalmology have expanded greatly in recent years. Miniaturization of operating instruments, refinements in surgical technique, and use of laser delivery systems have all been recognized as key contributions to the realm of ocular surgery. Increased precision, decreased operating time, and improved surgical outcomes have directly resulted from these advances. We feel that the next major advancement in ophthalmology is the integration of robotic surgery.
