Ing. Federico Acosta – Inovación en Oftalmología

by Oftalmocast Episodio 9, T4

OftalmoCast is an amazing podcasting space designed for networking between Spanish & English speaking ophthalmologists from all over the world. In season 4, episode 9, our CEO, Federico Acosta, was invited to discuss about innovation in ophthalmology and how Custom Surgical is taking part of that. 

During this interview, you can also learn more about Federico Acosta’s background as a mechatronics engineer, his hobbies and current and future projects. Especially interesting will be the story behind MicroREC, the optical system developed by him through Custom Surgical for video recordings of microscopic procedures using smartphones, and where the idea for it came from and who can use it.

This was as well a great opportunity to discuss the role that robotics will play in the future of ophthalmology and what are the motivators to follow this journey of innovation and developing revolutionary medical devices.

We would like to thank Dr. Ivo Ferreira for hosting this interview on OftalmoCast! To listen to the full podcast episode, play at the top of the post or visit
