Bausch & Lomb Inc. has announced the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of its enVista intraocular lens that is made in Aliso Viejo.
EnVista is used in cataract replacement surgeries.
Bausch said it plans full domestic commercial release of enVista when the FDA clears the lens’ supporting insertion system. The Rochester, N.Y.-based company said enVista received European approval last September.
Aliso Viejo is where Bausch’s eye surgical operations are based. The unit makes devices used in eye surgeries as well as intraocular lenses.
