Jeff George, President & Global Head of Alcon, shares his optimism for the ophthalmology sector with attendees at the recent Ophthalmology Innovation Summit in Chicago. George explained where Alcon was putting research and development dollars (spoiler, one involves Google.) He also identified what he saw as intriguing companies and technologies outside of Alcon.
Jeff was appointed to lead Alcon in May 2014. As the global leader in eye care, Alcon provides innovative products that enhance quality of life by helping people worldwide see better. The three Alcon businesses – Surgical, Pharmaceutical, and Vision Care – offer one of the widest portfolios of eye care products in the world, with 2014 sales of USD 10.8 billion.
