What our distributors are saying:

Titan Healthcare Pty Ltd. – Australia/New Zealand
“With over 30 years experience in the Ophthalmic Laser Industry our team understands the market needs. A versatile solution like the LION and LEAF lasers will be well suited to our wide spread regions allowing Ophthalmologists to provide treatment to patients either between city offices, or in the depths of the Outback. We are confident that the skilled team at Norlase will be a great technology partner for us, and we look forward to sharing this journey with them.” Andrew Smith, Managing Director

Iran Memco – Iran
“After 50 years and having a grand experience in several generations of ophthalmology lasers, we have witnessed gradual evolutions to breakthrough revolutions in this technology. Having said that, we can simply state that with LEAF™, Norlase® has designed a revolutionary product that will make the previous technologies seem obsolete. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Norlase® to promote innovative products of this brand.” Amir Mansour Karimian, Sales Director

OSAS Medical – Saudi Arabia
“We believe that Norlase, with its innovative ultra-compact solution for laser therapy, would properly address ophthalmologists’ needs for improved convenience, flexibility, portability and practice efficiency. The company will contribute to the change of ophthalmic care in our region for the better. With the addition of the LEAF green laser system to our portfolio of ophthalmic products, we look forward with anticipation, to a mutually beneficial and lasting business relationship with Norlase.” Younis Mohammad – Sales and Marketing Manager

Mandarin Opto-Medic Sdn Bhd – Southeast Asia
“Norlase has revolutionized the industry with a one-of-a-kind, truly unique, and innovative laser system. We are excited about this product as it is fully portable and can attach to majority brands of slit lamps to be used as a delivery system. It is especially useful for countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia – enabling them to bring necessary laser treatment to reach far into their vast areas of remote territories. As a solid-state laser, minimal maintenance is required and is cost-effective especially for developing countries. For developed countries, it is economical and without a doubt, a huge space saver. We are positive of an enthusiastic reception for this promising innovation.” Jason Jong, Managing Director

Emtron Ltd. Sti – Turkey
“After 30 years in the ophthalmic laser business, I see the move from argon tubes to solid-state like the computer industry’s move from old mainframes to personal computers, and Norlase products as the step from PCs to smartphones. Welcome to the 21st century!” Mehmet Melek, Owner
