<h4>Founded in 1998, Glaukos Corporation is an ophthalmic medical technology and pharmaceutical company focused on novel therapies for the treatment of glaucoma, corneal disorders, and retinal diseases.</h4> <h4>Our company was the first company to bring to market Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS), the micro-invasive procedure which revolutionized the treatment and management of glaucoma. In 2012, we launched our first MIGS device&mdash;the iStent&reg;&mdash;in the United States, followed by our next-generation iStent&nbsp;inject&reg;&nbsp;device in September 2018 and iStent&nbsp;inject&reg;&nbsp;W in September 2020.</h4> <h4>In November 2019, Glaukos acquired Avedro, maker of the first and only FDA-approved cross-linking technology for progressive keratoconus. And we continue to seek to leverage our platform technologies to build a comprehensive and proprietary portfolio of micro-scale surgical and pharmaceutical therapies for glaucoma, corneal health, and retinal diseases.</h4>
