Norlase Announces Newly Appointed Distributors into Major European Markets

Ballerup, Denmark and Redwood City, CA, USA – December 8, 2020 – Norlase®, an emerging global ophthalmic company developing next-generation laser solutions, is pleased to announce new distributor partnerships developed to advance market growth and global expansion of the Norlase family of green laser systems into France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. “We’re thrilled to announce that most ophthalmologists in Europe will now have access to the next generation of laser technology, through our network of customer-centric distribution partners”, said Oliver Hvidt, CEO and President of Norlase. “Our team has been working diligently to reach this important milestone and I want to congratulate everyone involved.”

Expansion into the European market is the next milestone for Norlase as they continue to increase market share in eye care, following the introduction of the LEAFTM (CE Marked Approved) and LIONTM Green Laser Systems in the United States. The teams of ophthalmic distributors selected to represent Norlase in their respective regions have extensive knowledge, not only in the retina and glaucoma markets, but also technological expertise in ophthalmic laser solutions. Leveraging their robust customer network and relationships, Norlase intends to continue to drive growth and establish a strong presence in these key countries.

“Our partnerships were thoughtfully established based on each distributor’s proven success in eye care and their immense ophthalmic knowledge. I am extremely proud and look forward to these collaborations and ongoing future success”, said Taoufiq Jellal, VP of Global Distribution at Norlase. “Norlase’s innovative laser technology is now more accessible to ophthalmologists and patients in Europe with upcoming announcements to expand into other regions around the world.”
