Sightpath Medical announced that it will launch its mobile femtosecond laser for cataract surgery early this year. The new service suite called MoFe will include a femtosecond laser, an intraoperative wavefront aberrometer, and a certified laser engineer, offered on a stop-fee and variable-cost basis, according to a company news release. A nationwide roll-out is planned throughout the year.

“With our new MoFe service, high capital costs and technology risks are no longer barriers for surgeons to access this new market of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery,” Jim Tiffany, president and CEO, Sightpath Medical, said in the news release.
