Sunnyvale, CA-A laser system for cataract surgery that combines a femtosecond laser, three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging, and a proprietary pattern scanning technology (Catalys Precision Laser System, OptiMedica) has been selected as a winner of R&D Magazine’s R&D 100 award.

Selected by an independent judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine, the R&D 100 awards recognize the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace over the past year.

“This award is a wonderful confirmation of what we are seeing from cataract surgeons around the world who are choosing [our laser system] because they believe it the best technology platform for laser cataract surgery,” said David D.
