KO Websites Builds Medical Device Product Site for Mynosys Zepto® Launch

KO Websites created a series of websites for Mynosys and its Canadian distributor Aequus Pharmaceuticals to launch a new medical device into the cataract surgery industry: the Zepto Personalized Cataract Surgery system or Zepto PCS™.

  3. Offer information in non-clinical terms for prospective patients who would be exploring cataract surgery options online.
  4. Offer a register of distributors, with contact information by country.
