ORLANDO, Fla., July 20 -- SurgiLight Inc. has agreed to a joint venture with MicraUSA Inc., (Utica, N.Y.) in which SurgiLight will assemble the MicraLight Escan 2020 scanning laser -- designed for vision correction -- in the UK, and to market the system worldwide. We are extremely anxious to begin the assembly of the MicraLight Escan 2020 scanning laser system in the United Kingdom, said J.T. Lin, president and CEO of SurgiLight. This joint venture should enhance our sales in countries that require the CE mark outside the United States and create opportunities that were not available to us before this agreement. The MicraLight Escan 2020 is an economical, state-of-the-art scanning laser designed to perform LASIK procedures and will be marketed throughout the world, outside the United States. SurgiLight specializes in IR-laser vision correction and has 21 Laser Eye Centers worldwide.
