Novartis Venture Funds leads Visiogen's $40mm Series E round
30 Apr 2009
Novartis Venture Funds has led the $40mm Series E financing for Visiogen (presbyopia- and cataract-correcting devices) and contributed a new board member. Technology Partners, another first-time investor, also contributed significantly and was joined by existing backers Three Arch Partners, New Leaf Venture Partners, Prospect Venture Partners, CMEA Ventures, and Foundation Medical Partners. The company will use the money to fund global commercialization of its accommodating intra-ocular lens Synchrony, which was recently launched in Europe and could be approved in the US next year. Including this round, Visiogen has raised over $80mm since it was founded in 2001.
