The event featured a balanced mix of doctors and global executives from established and emerging public and private companies.
Efe Can, MD, Global Innovation and Medical Affairs Director at VSY Biotechnology, commented on what to expect in the Ophthalmic Industry for the next 5 years at the round table with other industry players such as Alcon, Staar Surgical, BVI, Johnson & Johnson Vision, and Zeiss.
Current major economic interruptions led by Covid-19 and recent disruptions to energy supplies from the war in Ukraine were one of the main discussion topics during the session on companies’ innovation strategies.
Efe Can, MD highlighted the importance of being an agile company to adapt to the changing macro-economic environment while keeping sustainable growth. He added that the key to ensuring a sustainable growth in the era of crisis is being a self-sufficient company. VSY Biotechnology has taken several crucial steps to that end to become a self-sufficient company from the aspects of supply safety and energy sustainability to packaging.
