BACKGROUND Experimental protocol in our laboratory routinely requires the precise placement of instruments at, or near, the retina. Although manipulators for placing an instrument within the eye presently exist, none of the designs were satisfactory due to limitations on size, accuracy and operability. To overcome these limitations, we have developed a(More)
Needs which have arisen in ophthalmic research have motivated the development of a six degree of freedom parallel micromanipulator. The first application of the tool will be in the treatment of retinal vemus occlusion, for which micron-scale spherical movement of a glass micropipette tip inside the eye is required. The initial speration mode will be open(More)
