CV Laser Pty Ltd, which trades as CustomVis, designs, develops and markets surgical laser vision correction technology to ophthalmologists worldwide. The company has acquired all of the assets of CLVR Pty Ltd (Australia) and CustomVis plc (UK) which was founded in Australia in 2001 to address opportunities that were identified in the international laser vision correction industry.
The Australian owned company with production and R&D facilities located in Perth, Western Australia currently employs a team of highly experienced professionals in ophthalmic refractive industry, each with at least 10 years experience. It presently employs engineers, scientists, technicians and clinicians internationally.
CV Laser Pty Ltd has achieved a significant regulatory milestone with the Australian/European approval being granted (TGA/CE Mark) enabling sales in Europe and Australia in addition to other countries. The company is gearing up the production facilities and recruiting additional staff to keep pace with growing sales orders worldwide.
CV Laser Pty Ltd was set up in October 2010 to address a number of problems being experienced in the field of laser vision correction ("LVC"). LVC surgery involves the use of a laser to re-shape the cornea to try to correct visual abnormalities.
Currently, the most common form of LVC surgery utilises excimer (gas) laser technology, which the Directors believe is approaching the end of its product development cycle. This is mainly due to technological limitations including eye tracking technologies, limited gas lifetime, excessive maintenance, slower pulse rates and the larger beam spot sizes of the laser. The PULZAR Z1TM System was designed to address these issues and meet the requirements of effective custom LVC surgery.
