An Introduction

Welcome to Eyecare Vision of the Future, a new publication from Ethis Communications, Inc. Serving an audience of eyecare clinicians, venture capitalists, policy makers, and industry, Eyecare Vision of the Future is a venue for exploring cutting-edge technologies and new business models in eyecare. Our goal is to be an important information source for people who want to know what thought leaders in eyecare are excited about right now.

This is an exhilarating time for the field, one in which challenges and opportunities abound. On the one hand, increasing regulatory and economic pressures continue to push clinicians to become more efficient and business-savvy. On the other hand, powerful new therapies are making their way through the pipeline; and advanced technologies for diagnosis, treatment, and practice management continue to be introduced.

Investors have taken notice. The small specialty of ophthalmology today attracts more biopharmaceutical investment dollars than any other field of medicine, save two: oncology and metabolic disease.1 And when it comes to medical devices, no field is attracting more investment dollars than ophthalmology.1

However you look at it, eyecare is undergoing a period of intense innovation. Eyecare Vision of the Future lets you hear directly from thought leaders in eyecare about the future of this exciting and rapidly evolving field.
