Rayner showcases expanded portfolio: RayOne EMV Toric and RayPRO+

Rayner are proud to announce the launch of RayOne EMV Toric; an extension of the popular RayOne EMV enhanced monofocal IOL designed in collaboration with Professor Graham Barrett and launched in 2020. RayOne EMV Toric enables surgeons to now offer patients >1.5 D of high-quality natural vision with the added benefit of corneal astigmatism correction.

In response to market feedback, RayPRO (Rayner’s dedicated mobile and web-based digital platform which collects insightful Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) over three years) is now available in a tiered subscription format through the addition of RayPRO+, giving surgeons the option to now collect PROs data for all their IOLs.

Surgeons are invited to visit the Rayner booth (hall 4, stand: C11) to learn more about RayOne EMV Toric and RayPRO+.

Rayner pledges support to the ESCRS 2022 Congress ‘Mission Zero’ commitment by partnering with Gift a Tree

In addition to going fully paperless at the ESCRS congress and making extensive efforts to comply with recommendations from the ESCRS Sustainable Exhibiting Guide, Rayner want to take the sustainability message to the next level. To develop this idea, Rayner has partnered with Gift a Tree, who are dedicated to tree planting worldwide to generate new woodlands and forests.

“Rayner’s pledge to plant a tree for every lead generated at the ESCRS congress is a wonderful example of a company putting its position of influence and visibility to good use. We have every confidence that this partnership will not only have the apparent immediate benefits, but through making it easy for surgeons to take a positive action towards climate change, this typically has a knock-on effect and encourages more environmental action”, said Andy Fields, Director at Gift a Tree.

Generate a lead — plant a tree — reverse climate change — save the planet.
