LENSAR, Inc., a global leader in next generation femtosecond laser technology for refractive cataract surgery, today announced the Sharp Sight Centres now offer the LENSAR® Laser System to its cataract patients in Delhi, representing the company’s continued commitment to the international growth of its femtosecond laser cataract platform.
"We look forward to working with Dr. Kamal Kapur and his team at Sharp Sight Centres in Delhi to offer the precision and performance of the LENSAR Laser System to their refractive cataract patients,” announced Nicholas T. Curtis, LENSAR’s Chief Executive Officer. “I am very confident that the LENSAR Laser System’s advanced technology will support Dr. Kapur and his team’s ability to improve the quality of life for individuals with even the most dense cataracts, of which there is a high incidence in India.”
The LENSAR Laser System is the only femtosecond cataract laser on the market today developed specifically for refractive cataract surgery.
