Uniting Leaders in the Development of Ophthalmic Technologies Through High-Caliber Conferences, Content, Community, and Connections.

Years Strong

The Ophthalmology Innovation Summit launched in 2009 as the first event to unite entrepreneurs, start-up companies, clinical thought leaders, industry executives and investment professionals together to showcase and advance the development of novel therapies to address unmet clinical needs. Over the past decade, OIS evolved into the Ophthalmology Innovation Source which offers a comprehensive suite of media, events and data to deliver invaluable information and facilitate meaningful connections.

I love OIS, nothing else comes close in presenting the total picture of
Ophthalmology with all of it’s Business, Financing and Strategy.

Stephen Slade, MD
Surgeon / Slade & Baker Vision

The Ophthalmology Innovation Summit is for me the highlight of both the ASCRS and AAO Meetings.
This meeting is packed with useful information for the ophthalmologist, industry executive
and investor that is simply not available in any other venue.
I consider OIS to be a cannot miss meeting.
