Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — Optovue, the company that launched the first FDA cleared fourier/spectral domain OCT in the US, announced its second quarter revenue results for 2010 grew 57% over the same period in fiscal 2009. This also puts the first six months of 2010 at a 57% revenue increase over the same period in 2009.
“Following our 57% revenue growth in Q1 over prior year, our six month year-to-date revenue growth for 2010 is holding very strong,” stated Gordon Wong, Vice President of Finance for Optovue. “With the recent FDA clearance of the Normative Database for the RTVue FD-OCT system and the strong growth in the sales of iVue compact OCT systems, the remainder of 2010 is on track to significantly exceed forecast.”
