A system for robotically assisted retinal surgery has been developed to rapidly and safely place lesions on the retina for photocoagulation therapy. This system provides real- time, motion stabilized lesion placement for typical irradiation times of 100 ms. The system consists of three main subsystems: a global, digital-based tracking subsystem; a fast, local analog tracking subsystem in previous SPIE presentations. This paper concentrates on the development of the confocal reflectance subsystem and its integration into the overall photocoagulation system. Specifically, our goal was to use measurable lesion reflectance growth curve parameters to develop a noninvasive method to infer lesion depth. This method will allow dynamic control of laser dosimetry to provide similar lesions across the non-uniform retinal surface.
