The device maker said in a statement that Harrison, who joined Glaukos in 2008, would remain CFO until a successor’s named “and he has agreed to assist with an orderly transaction.”

Harrison was executive vice president and chief financial officer at Biolase Technology Inc., now Irvine-based Biolase Inc., prior to joining Glaukos.

Glaukos is searching for Harrison’s successor.

Shares of Glaukos were up 1% in recent trading to a market value of $1.1 billion.
