To make sure patients are treated in complete safety, the ergonomics of operating rooms is paramount. In 2015, ophthalmology redesigned two rooms by optimising the positioning of each party present (patient, doctors, nurses, mobile equipment) and by modernising equipment (computerised anaesthetic machines, surgical lighting with video system, microscopes, and so on.).
