Allergan Crosses The Last Frontier in Ophthalmology

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

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. With Allergan's recent CE approval of an intraocular lens for presbyopia, ophthalmology companies see a new market to capitalize on.
