LenSx Lasers


company snapshot

LenSx Lasers

LenSx Lasers developed a first-of-kind femtosecond laser to operate inside the eye to make cataract surgery safer and more effective. The company was acquired by Alcon in 2010 in a $744M deal less than 3 years after startup, making it one of the highest return medical device investments in InterWest’s history. The founding team was the same team from IntraLase, a highly successful predecessor InterWest company that pioneered the first femtosecond laser for laser vision correction through all-laser LASIK.
