Rayner’s History, and The Invention of IOLs

Given that cataract is a critical issue to address for the area of avoidable blindness, it would be remiss if we glossed over the original manufacturer of the IOL. So we won’t. Rayner produced the first IOL at the company’s instrument workshop in Brighton, U.K., and the first operation was performed in 1949. We spoke with Tim Clover, CEO of Rayner, to find out his perspective on making inroads against cataract-based avoidable blindness in our modern era of 2021 and beyond.
