From science to entrepreneurship
In addition to my medical work, I am a founder and partner of companies. My focus is always on the ideal combination of science and entrepreneurship in terms of maintaining and further developing the quality of treatment for my patients. I attach particular importance to supporting innovative ideas that are ahead of their time.
Together with our customers we support ophthalmologists and opticians all over the world in their daily work. Solid innovation, research and development are our foundation. Ultra-precise lasers and highly sensitive opto-electronics are our tools of the trade.
Your idea has what it takes to solve an ophthalmological or ophthalmic problem. Now a prototype has to prove that it actually works and that your development can reach market maturity. Our engineers, physicists and software specialists develop your idea into a technical solution in the form of hardware and software - your prototype.
Time is money. We ensure reliable planning, execution and control of your project under time and cost aspects, individually, result-oriented and transparent.
Current and future international medical device regulations require fully documented processes and results for the approval of your prototype.
