World’s 1st robotic eye operation performed in Britain
12 September 2016 Current Affairs: British surgeons have successfully performed the world’s first robotic operation inside the eye, potentially revolutionising the way such conditions are treated. 

The procedure was carried out at John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford.

The surgeons used a joystick and touchscreen outside the eye to control the robot while monitoring its progress through the operating microscope. 

This gave medics a notable advantage as significant movements of the joystick resulted in tiny movements of the robot.
