As part of a strategic review of our operating businesses, Vision Ophthalmology Group (VOG) will close its subsidiary in Spain, Polytech-Domilens SL, in the coming weeks. As a late entrant into the highly competitive Spanish market it has not been possible to gain a strong foothold, despite having some unique products.
This has resulted in a change in our business model for Spain and we are pleased to announce a new partnership with OftalTech Solutions as a distributor for VOG.
Oftaltech has been operating in Spain since 1997 and is recognised as a major distribution company with a number of well known product brands. Recently, Oftaltech has incorporated a complete portfolio of refractive and specialist IOLs into its business and is enjoying success in this business segment.
Oftaltech is also appointed as the exclusive distributor of the exciting IPCL® phakic lens for treating myopia, hyperopia and presbyopia, a product which has enjoyed particular success in the Spanish market.
Furthermore, as well as the close partnership between VOG and Oftaltech, Manel Morros, Founder and CEO of Oftaltech, will join VOGs executive committee.
