3D printing in eye tumour treatment | MANDEEP SAGOO | TEDxLimassol



Published
Tumours in ophthalmology are rare. The primary eye cancer found inside the eye in children is retinoblastoma and in adults is melanoma. Many advances have improved saving the eye and vision, but still the eye needs to be removed in a significant number of cases. Accepting loss of the eye physically and psychologically is challenging, and prosthetic eyes are handmade to give as normal an appearance as possible. In this talk I will describe modern technology that takes non-invasive optical scans of the socket and the normal eye and generates a 3D printed prosthetic eye, in the rehabilitation of patients that lose an eye. Mandeep Sagoo is Professor of Ophthalmology and Ocular Oncology at UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon with subspecialist interest in adult and pediatric eye tumours at the London Ocular Oncology Service at Moorfields Eye Hospital and the London Retinoblastoma Service at Royal London Hospital. He is the Programme Director for the MSc course in Ophthalmology at UCL/Moorfields.

Having graduated from Cambridge University, he undertook his residency in Ophthalmology at Oxford and then Moorfields Eye Hospital. His Fellowship training was in Ocular Oncology, as a Fulbright Scholar, under Dr Jerry Shields and Dr Carol Shields at Wills Eye Hospital and Medical Retina Fellowship at Moorfields. He holds over 20 academic awards and prizes, including the Gedge Prize of Cambridge University, John Glyn Young Fellows Prize of Royal Society of Medicine, PJ Hay Medal of the North of England Ophthalmology Society, the Syme Medal and the King James IV Professorship of Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He has written 5 book chapters and over 150 academic papers. He is a Member of Macula Society, Council Member of Oxford Ophthalmological Congress and has served as Honorary Secretary of the International Society of Ocular Oncology. He has also had the honour of Visiting Professorship of Ophthalmology at Stanford University, USA. In November 2021, he led the clinical team that fitted a fully digitally engineered 3D printed ocular prosthetic
in a patient – a world first. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
