WaveTec Vision® Honored as One of Orange County's Fastest-Growing Companies

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2013) - WaveTec Vision today announced it has been named one of the fastest-growing private companies by the Orange County Business Journal. WaveTec has seen sales of its proprietary ORA System® for cataract surgery skyrocket since its commercialization in 2011. ORA-guided cataract surgery enables surgeons to measure the eye and refine outcomes during the procedure, rather than having to 'wait and see' as with traditional cataract surgery.

Considered one of the biggest cataract surgery breakthroughs in 40 years, the ORA System uses intraoperative wavefront aberrometry to improve the precision of cataract surgery so patients achieve their best possible vision. WaveTec will be recognized in today's edition of the Orange County Business Journal.

"We're gratified for the recognition here in Orange County, which has a long history of growing and developing ophthalmic innovation; it's an honor to be part of that tradition," said Tom Frinzi, WaveTec president and CEO.

In other recent news, the company announced it received an additional $11 million in financing to support the continued commercialization of the ORA System and its highly anticipated VerifEye™ monitoring system. VerifEye is a hardware upgrade for the ORA System that enables surgeons to confirm eye stability prior to measurement by providing streaming refractions in a preview screen. Surgeons consider this a significant benefit -- one that is translating into more precise surgery, more refined visual outcomes and more satisfied cataract surgery patients.
