    Glaucoma, Retina/Vitreous

    Iridex Corporation introduced four new products at the Academy’s 2013 Annual Meeting in New Orleans earlier this month:

    • A new version of the TxCell Pattern Scanning Laser Delivery System.
    • A new Iridex MicroPulse Laser Trabeculoplasty (MLT) lens manufactured by Ocular Instruments. Distributed exclusively through Iridex, it is designed to increase efficiency and precision of MLT for the treatment of glaucoma.
    • A portfolio of Peregrine Surgical-branded single-use 27-gauge laser probes compatible with 27-gauge vitrectomy systems used in retina surgery.
    • A GreenTip Membrane Scraper, available in 23 and 25 gauges, offering a single-use surgical device intended for specialized retinal surgery and to maximize visualization against the retina.

    "These are each significant new products that represent what we see as important niches and opportunities in the ophthalmology marketplace," said Will Moore, president and CEO of Iridex. "Furthermore, they are prime examples of our ability to identify growing needs in the marketplace and quickly design and launch consumable products to meet those needs."
