Recent Highlights

  • Achieved fourth quarter 2021 revenue of $8.4 million, representing growth of 71% compared to the prior year period and 46% growth over the third quarter of 2021 driven by the:
    • Sale of 45 Light Delivery Devices (LDDs), expanding the installed base to 206 LDDs as of December 31, 2021; and

These accomplishments, coupled with the LAL’s unique ability to deliver precisely customized vision for patients, as well as to expand premium cataract revenue for doctors and practices, have created substantial momentum for RxSight to drive continued growth in 2022,” said Ron Kurtz, CEO and President of RxSight.
