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.
