Avedro said CEO David Muller stepped down shortly after it closed a $32 million equity round last month, replaced on an interim basis by COO Brian Roberts, the former CFO at Insulet (NSDQ:PODD).
Waltham-based Avedro said Muller left to “pursue other opportunities.”
“On behalf of the board and all the Avedro employees, I want to thank David for his tireless efforts. Ophthalmologists around the world have David to thank for the advances in corneal cross-linking that Avedro researched, developed and commercialized around the world under his leadership,” director Dr. Gil Kliman said in prepared remarks.
Avedro, which also announced CE Mark approval in the European Union for its Mosaic low myopia treatment, said it hopes to have its KXL treatment on the U.S. market in the 2nd half of 2016.
