Thomas Ruggia has been named as CEO of VisionCare, according to a press release.

Ruggia is replacing Wolfgang Tolle, who also served as executive chairman of the board.

Previously, Ruggia worked at Johnson & Johnson for 5 years, most recently as vice president WW customer experience and ocular surface disease at Johnson & Johnson Vision.

“The opportunity to lead and grow VisionCare to serve a broader patient candidate pool is one that I embrace. I look forward to communicating more about our plans to further develop our novel technology and introduce an enhanced delivery system that will improve the patient and provider’s surgical experience,” Ruggia said in the release.

In May, VisionCare received a CE mark for its implantable telescope delivery system for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration.
