We’re excited to welcome the talented Avedro employees to the Glaukos organization to help build upon our solid foundation to transform Glaukos into a global ophthalmic pharmaceutical and device leader capable of serving the vision care needs of physicians and their patients for years to come.”

As a result of the acquisition’s close, Avedro’s common stock will now cease to trade on the Nasdaq.
