Celebrating 30 years of progress at the ÖOG congress 2017 in Villach

June 21, 2017

This year, HOYA Surgical Optics had several reasons to celebrate at the 58th congress of the Österreichische Ophthalmologischen Gesellschaft (ÖOG) which took place from May 25-27, 2017 in Villach, Austria.

The first reason was its 30th anniversary. The booth was decorated with 30-year-balloons. Cupcakes with 30-year-flags were offered to the booth visitors.

The second one was that more than 5 Million iSert preloaded IOLs have been implanted worldwide since the first hydrophobic 3-piece IOL preloaded system was launched in 2007. A huge poster presented the iSert IOL family with Vivinex and AF-1 preloaded IOLs.

Another reason to commemorate was the launch of the new Vivinex™ Toric iSert in the European market. The Vivinex™ IOL-platform has been complemented with the new model Vivinex™ Toric XY1A.
