New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE), America's first eye hospital, founded in 1820, is once again breaking new ground by introducing the first clinical robotic interventional system for ocular surgery in America (and only the third in the world). The micro-surgical robotic system arrived in August 2020 from the Dutch medical robotics company Preceyes B.V., and has been installed in the Jorge N. Buxton Microsurgical Education Center at NYEE. The system has the potential to revolutionize the delivery of sight-saving therapies and opens a new chapter in micro-interventional ophthalmic surgery in this country and globally.
