"An important part of our growth strategy is to develop and identify unique consumable products that bring clinical value to retina surgeons and their patients, and we are very pleased to be working with Alcon in distributing a key product family in that category," commented Dr. Dominik Beck, President & CEO. "Working with Alcon, the market leader in ophthalmology devices, underscores the value of our enhanced visualization cannula products and may lead to additional opportunities for collaboration in the future."
