FDA approves Quantel Medical's eye surgery device

Quantel Medical, a French ophthalmic medical devicemaker, earned Food and Drug Administration approval for its Easyret photocoagulator laser.

The device is used to perform ocular laser surgery. The laser emits short pulses of 577-nm yellow wavelength, which physicians can use to treat certain forms of macular edema and peripheral retinal pathologies.

"The technology is a compact, reliable variation on solid-state lasers," said Jean-Marc Gendre, CEO of Quantel Medical. "Quantel engineers worked closely with surgeons to design a fully integrated system with an intuitive interface to ensure optimal ergonomics and ease of use."
