Technolas Perfect Vision is the new company name for the joint venture between Bausch & Lomb and 20/10 Perfect Vision AG that will focus on laser vision correction.

The business will initially concentrate on treatments for presbyopia and aims to provide clinicians with advanced excimer and femtosecond laser technology. One of its new procedures is INTRACOR, an intrastromal treatment, which carries the CE mark for treatment of presbyopic hypreopes.

Dr Kristian Hohla, Technolas's new CEO sees this as potentially huge: "These are breakthrough technologies, transforming the lifestyle of presbyopia sufferers and providing clinicians with a wonderful opportunity to attract a stream of new patients to their refractive practices."
