Mr Javad Moayedi, ophthalmic consultant and NHS medical director for the company, said: ‘Throughout the pandemic, Optegra has supported various NHS trusts around the country to be able to perform cataract surgery, which has been an honour. It is wonderful to see the transformation this procedure can make in people’s lives.’
