08 Advanced image guided surgical interventions in ophthalmology
This cluster focuses on precise, computer aided control of
ophthalmic surgical operations with medical imaging technologies used
as the feedback source. The subprojects address important aspects of
ocular surgery with novel ideas: precise intercorneal inlay
insertation for treating Presbyopia (the age related decline in the
ability of the lens to accommodate for clear near vision), computer
assisted laser photocoagulation (applying laser energy to the retina
to seal leaking blood vessels), and development of untethered MEMS
robotic devices for minimally invasive retinal surgeries.
This project utilises medical images for precise surgical placement of intracorneal inlays.
This project develops untethered MEMS microrobots to "swim" inside the eye and perform retinal operations.
Computer assisted planning and delivery of laser energy onto the retina.
This project develops techniques for fusion of data from multiple types and source.
