Sight Sciences (SGHT) to Expand in Europe With New Launch

Sight Sciences, Inc. SGHT has made significant progress in bolstering its presence in the European eye surgery market with the launch of the Ergo-Series of the OMNI Surgical System. This advanced technology is designed to facilitate minimally invasive glaucoma procedures.

With this development, the company expects to advance in the promising field of surgical interventions for adults with open-angle glaucoma across the continent.

Enhanced Ergonomics and Precise Access

The Ergo-Series, initially introduced in the United States in March 2023, has garnered widespread acclaim among surgeons for its improved ergonomics and optimized cannula tip. These enhancements allow for gentler and more precise access to Schlemm’s canal, a crucial aspect of glaucoma surgery. By streamlining the surgical process and offering improved handling, the Ergo-Series empowers surgeons to perform procedures with greater confidence and efficacy.

Strategic Implication

The launch of the Ergo-Series in Europe marks a strategic move for Sight Sciences to expand its foothold in the region. By tapping into the European market, Sight Sciences aims to capitalize on the growing demand for advanced eye care technologies.

Positive feedback from surgeons further underscores the potential impact of the Ergo-Series in Europe. A spokesperson from Bürgerhospital Eye Clinic in Frankfurt commended the improved ergonomics and design enhancements, highlighting the potential for earlier interventions and better disease management. Further, a consultant ophthalmic surgeon at Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion in Edinburgh and NHS Research Scotland Clinical Lead for Ophthalmology has also praised the intuitive design and enhanced tactile feedback, emphasizing the device's accessibility across various stages of glaucoma treatment.
