Forsight Robotics, a developer of a robotic surgical platform for ophthalmic procedures, has reportedly raised $10 million.
According to a report from TechCrunch, the seed round of financing was led by Eclipse Ventures and Mithril Capital and is earmarked to be used for expanding the company’s headcount and global reach as it sets its sights on launching its robotic surgery platform in multiple markets around the globe.
The Isreal-based company’s robotic surgical platform is designed to utilize microsurgical technology, advanced visualization and machine learning to produce automated ophthalmic procedures that offer precision and cost-effectiveness, according to the company’s website.
According to CTech, the company, which employs 15 people at present, was founded by Moshe Shoham, the founder of Mazor Robotics, which was bought by Medtronic for $1.7 billion.
Additionally, Intuitive Surgical and Auris Health (now part of Johnson & Johnson) co-founder Dr. Fred Moll is on the company’s strategic advisory board, as is Mako Surgical’s Rony Abovitz and Mithril’s Ajay Royan.
