Second Sight Medical Expands Into South Korea

Sylmar-based Second Sight Medical Products said this morning that it has entered the South Korean market, after its visual prosthetics products were implanted into two patients in that country. According to Second Sight Medical, the implants were facilitated by distribution partner Kisantech Co. Second Sight Medical, led by CEO Will McGuire, says it is in the midst of an effort to expand its footprint in Asia. The company's medical implants are used to provide useful vision to blind patients.
