First Implantation of RayOne Aspheric Fully Preloaded IOL in United States Completed by Renowned Surgeon William F. Wiley, MD

Posted on 6/02/2019

NEW YORK, New York, February 01, 2019 – The first U.S. implantation of Rayner’s flagship RayOne Aspheric fully preloaded monofocal IOL (RAO600C) was successfully performed by William F. Wiley, MD at the Brecksville Surgery Center in Cleveland, Ohio following FDA approval in late 2018.

After the surgery, Dr. Wiley commented that “RayOne Aspheric is a game changer. After trying multiple preloaded systems, this is the easiest and simplest preloaded system on the market, coupled with the ability to go through the smallest incision.”

Rayner’s Director of North America, James Crutchlow, said “we are excited about this first U.S. implantation of RayOne Aspheric and very grateful for Dr Wiley’s participation. We look forward to continuing to build our presence in the United States and providing surgeons with this latest innovation in injector technology.”

  • Enhanced 6.0 mm aspheric optic
