- BVI broadens its widely popular range of Malosa® single-use ophthalmic instruments to
span cataract, oculoplastic, corneal refractive procedures and other office-based
- Malosa single-use instruments help surgeons focus on precision, reduce cross
contaminations, and increase operating room efficiency.
Waltham, MA – September 8, 2020 – BVI, the fastest growing diversified company in
ophthalmology, today announced the extension of its Malosa®
range of single-use ophthalmic
instruments in the US. The US Malosa portfolio will now include specialty instruments for use in
corneal refractive surgery, complementing the existing single-use product range for cataract,
oculoplastic and office-based procedures, such as LASIK, PRK and SMILE®.
Malosa high quality, surgical steel, single-use instruments offer a strong alternative to reusable
instruments in terms of consistency, OR efficiency, and potential reduction of surgical cross
contamination. With the increasing need for operational efficiency, Malosa single-use
instruments reduce the need for instrument cleaning, sterilization and repairs.
“We are excited to bring the Malosa refractive instrument range to the US, complementing the
current US Malosa portfolio.” said Darin Dixon, VP of US Sales for BVI. “We know that
ophthalmic surgeons have an extremely high bar for quality and precision, and by expanding
our existing single-use Malosa portfolio, we have a best in class solution for cataract,
oculoplastic, and now, refractive procedures. The Malosa range offers US surgeons a singleuse option eliminating the operational inconsistency sometimes found with reusable
instruments. Based on the work we have done with leading ophthalmic surgeons across the
world, we are confident that these instruments will exceed expectations.”
Dr Jay Bansal of LaserVue Eye Centre welcomed the launch, saying “I’ve had the opportunity to
trial the newest addition of Malosa instruments for refractive procedures over the past several
months. I am very impressed by the quality and precision they offer, and the performance has
been excellent. It is great that these will now be available across the US.”
