The OIS Index Consists of Publicly Traded Small and Mid-Cap Growth Companies in Ophthalmology

Powered By:

We introduced the OIS Index, a composite of ophthalmic growth stocks, in October 2016 at OIS@AAO with the purpose of tracking the performance of our sector. The components of the OIS Index are publicly traded small- and mid-cap growth companies in ophthalmology that derive at least half of their value from ophthalmic products and technology. The index was launched with a base value of 1,000. The index is initially weighted about 70% biopharma and 30% ophthalmic device, based on both number of companies and company valuations. Company market caps range from $5 million to $3 billion, with a median of $170 million.
