Allergan Crosses The Last Frontier in Ophthalmology

Ophthalmology companies have long recognized that many people will pay for the benefit of being able to see without wearing glasses. The success of LASIK laser surgery has borne this out, but that market is maturing. Presbyopia, the disorder that causes people to need reading glasses as they get older, isn't helped by laser surgery. It can, however, be helped by intraocular lenses.
