VC Says There Are Many ‘Unmet Needs’ in Ophthalmology Space
SAN FRANCISCO — The second annual Ophthalmology Innovation Summit (OIS) was held in conjunction with the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ASCRS; Reston, Virginia). International Business Forum (Massapequa, New York) organized the meeting.
The purpose of the OIS conference is to support innovation by facilitating deal-flow and business partnerships between CEOs of young companies, investors, corporate executives, physicians and academic scientists in the field of ophthalmology.
Bill Link from Versant Ventures (Menlo Park, California), the most renowned and perhaps the most successful venture investor in the ophthalmic surgical space, led off the conference with a talk titled “High Impact Innovation in Surgical Ophthalmology.”
