Too many intravitreal injections? Swiss start-up Ophthorobotics is building a robot that will do it for you!

The demand for intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF agents, for example, is increasing with the aging of the population - in some countries to such an extent that it can no longer be covered by physicians. While in some countries the injections are now performed by medical assistants, in other countries these injections must be performed by physicians. The Swiss start-up Ophthorobotics is developing a robot that automatically performs intravitreal injections.


How can I shorten my re(fr)action time? Glasspop has the solution!

In the clinical, ophthalmologic daily routine, often a lot of time and personnel resources are spent on the subjective refraction of the patients. The French start-up Glasspop, founded by two ophthalmologists, has now developed a digital solution - the self-refraction. The fact that this works well is proven by about 5000 subjective refractions performed by patients themselves every day.

Should I ask ChatGPT or an eye doctor? An interview with a ChatBot!

In recent weeks, OpenAI's ChatBot ChatGPT has amazed the world in many ways. ChatGPT is able to write natural-looking texts, drawing on a wide range of information. We chat with ChatGPT and put the software to the test by asking it questions about ophthalmology topics. At the end, we also ask ChatGPT for its opinion on how ophthalmology will go in the future - with amazing results!

Heidelberg AppWay - Artificial intelligence becomes reality in ophthalmology!

Many studies have already shown that artificial intelligence can make many things easier in ophthalmology. Until now, however, there has been a lack of real-life examples of application in clinical practice. The path from the development of an algorithm to the clinic was also a major hurdle. With Heidelberg AppWay, Heidelberg Engineering has now developed a solution to these problems.


MIKAJAKI- A start-up is developing the all-in-one solution for automated, multimodal imaging.

Digital and remote ophthalmic patient care has always been limited by the availability of multimodality and automated imaging. The start-up MIKAJAKI is now trying to solve this problem with their EyeLib system and offers an Artificial Intelligence supported all-in-one solution for automated and intelligent ophthalmic diagnostics. In the following interview, CEO Yann Voillot tells us what EyeLib can do for us ophthalmologists and for the patients.


Xeno-Hoc - A Japanese start-up is pushing artificial intelligence to its limits.

Xeno-Hoc is a Japanese startup specializing in the development of artificial intelligence algorithms. Especially in the field of automated image data analysis in ophthalmology, the research group of founder Hiroki Masumoto (Head Prof. Hitoshi Tabuchi, Hiroshima, Japan) has published a number of high-profile publications. Moreover, the work group is also specialized in both anterior and posterior segment imaging of the eye.
