ReVision Optics Gets FDA Approval
Lake Forest-based implantable, corneal inlay maker ReVision Optics has received FDA approval on the company's Raindrop Near Vision Inlay, the company reported late Wednesday. ReVision Optics' implantable, presbyopia-correcting corneal inlay helps improve the visio of patients, by reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea. The company said its technology can handle patients with refraction of +1.00 D to -0.50 D. ReVision Optics said it now aniticipates commercialization of its product beginning in the third quarter, saying it estimates a market of approximately 2,800 surgeons and 30 million potential patients for its product.
