Ilasis Laser raises 4.4 M€ to democra�ze laser cataract surgery and
finance the commercial development of Rx, its femtosecond laser
surgical instrument.
Bordeaux, June 20th, 2023: Ilasis Laser, manufacturer of laser medical devices for
ophthalmology, announces having raised 4.4 million euros via a pool of Business Angels, IRDI
Capital Investment and Nouvelle Aquitaine COinvestment (NACO).
Thanks to its innova�ve and patented technology, Ilasis Laser wishes to address the major
challenges of ophthalmology through frugal innova�on. Ilasis Laser designs, manufactures,
and markets Rx, the first femtosecond laser instrument dedicated to cataract surgery.
Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the world and the most widespread surgery with
more than 30 million opera�ons per year. The first step of this surgery is the cu�ng of the
anterior capsule of the lens. This key step, very difficult to achieve, requires a long learning
curve for surgeons. The handheld instrument Rx allows a perfectly predictable and
reproducible femtosecond laser cu�ng to be performed, securing and simplifying the
procedure.
Ilasis Laser is supported, since its crea�on in 2019, by the Nouvelle Aquitaine Region and BPI
France as well as by a Scien�fic Council composed of several renowned ophthalmologists (Pr
B. Cochener, Pr. A. Brézin, Pr. D. Touboul, Dr F. Lignereux) and by Pr. Gérard Mouroux, Nobel
Prize in Physics, and inventor of femtosecond laser. A�er comple�ng a round of 2.2 M€ in
December 2021 to finance its clinical inves�ga�ons and prepare for the launch of its product,
ILASIS Laser raises 4.4 M€ to finance the commercial development in Europe of its Rx product
and the necessary FDA approval prior to marke�ng in the USA.
78 pa�ents have already been treated with femtolaser Rx during clinical inves�ga�ons to
validate device performance for CE marking. These trials were carried out in France by Dr
Lignereux at the Clinique Sourdille Atlan�que (Groupe Elsan) in Nantes. A�er more than 8.5M€
invested in the project, the Rx cer�fica�on is now under review, with CE marking expected in
autumn 2023, followed by approval by the FDA (USA) in early 2024. First sales in Europe are
planned for early 2024 through the new Helix Surgical brand.
«Ilasis Laser aims to become a major player in medical devices by applying frugal innovation
to multiple problem solving. The most advanced technologies should be put at the service of
the greatest number by simplifying devices and their use. We are very happy to be strongly
supported by experienced Business Angels who bring us all their entrepreneurial experience
and 80% of this round table, as well as by IRDI Capital Investment that has accompanied us
since the beginning of this project and by NACO that marks the support of the Nouvelle
Aquitaine Region for our adventure» says François Salin, President of Ilasis Laser.

Philippe du Mesnil a private investor who is a significant par�cipant in this transac�on, notes
that «this project brings together all the conditions to be a great regional success for
Nouvelle Aquitaine: the expertise and experience of a local leader, a promising scientific
environment in Optics in Bordeaux, and strong regional financial support with the
intervention of a Regional Investor alongside Bordeaux Business Angels».
Geneviève Blanc, Investment Director at IRDI Capital Inves�ssement « We are particularly
pleased with this investment through the Irdinov 2 fund which supports an innovation that
brings a real benefit for a very common act but that requires a real dexterity. It is a great
satisfaction to complete this operation which gives this beautiful team the means necessary
for the development of this first product».
Jean-Pierre Renaudin, president of NACo Fund (Nouvelle-Aquitaine Co-inves�ssement) « We
are very pleased that the funding of the European Union and Conseil Régional de Nouvelle-
Aquitaine can, through the NACO fund, participate in the development of Ilasis Laser which is
at the crossroads of several themes dear to the Nouvelle Aquitaine region: photonics, health
and frugality. With 20 million blind people worldwide due to cataracts, this disease is a real
societal issue and the wise use of the most advanced technologies to help solve this health
problem will be a great regional success.”

Ilasis Laser - Levée de Fonds (2023).pdf

  • 1. 1 Ilasis Laser raises 4.4 M€ to democra�ze laser cataract surgery and finance the commercial development of Rx, its femtosecond laser surgical instrument. Bordeaux, June 20th, 2023: Ilasis Laser, manufacturer of laser medical devices for ophthalmology, announces having raised 4.4 million euros via a pool of Business Angels, IRDI Capital Investment and Nouvelle Aquitaine COinvestment (NACO). Thanks to its innova�ve and patented technology, Ilasis Laser wishes to address the major challenges of ophthalmology through frugal innova�on. Ilasis Laser designs, manufactures, and markets Rx, the first femtosecond laser instrument dedicated to cataract surgery. Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the world and the most widespread surgery with more than 30 million opera�ons per year. The first step of this surgery is the cu�ng of the anterior capsule of the lens. This key step, very difficult to achieve, requires a long learning curve for surgeons. The handheld instrument Rx allows a perfectly predictable and reproducible femtosecond laser cu�ng to be performed, securing and simplifying the procedure. Ilasis Laser is supported, since its crea�on in 2019, by the Nouvelle Aquitaine Region and BPI France as well as by a Scien�fic Council composed of several renowned ophthalmologists (Pr B. Cochener, Pr. A. Brézin, Pr. D. Touboul, Dr F. Lignereux) and by Pr. Gérard Mouroux, Nobel Prize in Physics, and inventor of femtosecond laser. A�er comple�ng a round of 2.2 M€ in December 2021 to finance its clinical inves�ga�ons and prepare for the launch of its product, ILASIS Laser raises 4.4 M€ to finance the commercial development in Europe of its Rx product and the necessary FDA approval prior to marke�ng in the USA. 78 pa�ents have already been treated with femtolaser Rx during clinical inves�ga�ons to validate device performance for CE marking. These trials were carried out in France by Dr Lignereux at the Clinique Sourdille Atlan�que (Groupe Elsan) in Nantes. A�er more than 8.5M€ invested in the project, the Rx cer�fica�on is now under review, with CE marking expected in autumn 2023, followed by approval by the FDA (USA) in early 2024. First sales in Europe are planned for early 2024 through the new Helix Surgical brand. «Ilasis Laser aims to become a major player in medical devices by applying frugal innovation to multiple problem solving. The most advanced technologies should be put at the service of the greatest number by simplifying devices and their use. We are very happy to be strongly supported by experienced Business Angels who bring us all their entrepreneurial experience and 80% of this round table, as well as by IRDI Capital Investment that has accompanied us since the beginning of this project and by NACO that marks the support of the Nouvelle Aquitaine Region for our adventure» says François Salin, President of Ilasis Laser.
