FREMONT, Calif., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Optovue, a pioneer in fourier/spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), has announced fiscal year-end results for 2009 compared to fiscal year 2008. Despite the down economy, eye care clinicians proved that the right combination of clinical utility and clinical value is still the best package.
"Our customers around the world provided a 19% revenue increase for 2009 over 2008," stated Gordon Wong, Vice President of Finance for Optovue. "We have continuing strong support by representatives and distributor's world-wide, and all regions including the US are up significantly from 2008. The first fiscal quarter of 2010 demonstrated still another significant increase over 2009 numbers. The trend is clearly demonstrating that the clinical package offered by Optovue products is still highly desirable when faced with a number of product options."
