EyeFocus Eye Care Innovation Conference

31 January 2017, London, UK.
EyeFocus is holding a one day conference about eye-care innovation to end the second EyeFocus program. The conference is instead of the traditional demo day, and will go beyond startups pitching to investors, instead presenting the ecosystem EyeFocus has built in eye-care innovation.

The conference will bring together thought leaders from across eye-care, innovation, and tech. The day will feature keynote talks, discussion panels, and short pitches from a broad range of the companies in the EyeFocus program, from startups to developed businesses.

The aim of the day is to share the built ecosystem, and the knowledge clustered around EyeFocus, and to promote innovation in eye-care. The day will be a mix of networking, education, and information for people working in eye-care, health tech, and startups.

EyeFocus Eye Care Innovation Conference is sponsored by Bayer, and has partnered with the world famous Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB), and Royal Academy of Engineering (RAENG) to bring thought leaders from across the eye-care spectrum together for a unique event in the centre of London.
