Octane’s annual Ophthalmology Tech Summit is back in Newport Beach at the Balboa Bay Resort on June 16-17. Southern California is the worldwide leader in ophthalmic innovation and Octane’s event is a must-attend gathering for industry, physicians, industry partners, investors and entrepreneurs.
Octane will convene major industry leaders and startups, as well as some of the most-influential leaders and industry advocates in-person and virtually, giving a global audience access to a powerhouse event. The Summit’s premiere sponsors Aerie Pharmaceuticals, Alcon, Allergan an AbbVie Company, Johnson & Johnson Vision, STAAR Surgical, Visionary Venture Fund, and many more.
“This year we’ve added a physician and entrepreneur reception, creating a unique opportunity for physicians to meet these innovative entrepreneurs and determine if there is a mutually beneficial fit and interest to get more involved, such as becoming a board member or advisor. In addition to hosting premier content, we believe in the power of making connections within our ecosystem to drive impact” said Bill Carpou, CEO of Octane.
Octane is uniquely qualified to provide this opportunity as they continue to bridge the relationships they have with physicians and the companies that have used their LaunchPad SBDC Accelerator. The Partnership Pursuit reception will be held the evening before the Summit begins on Thursday, June 16 and is invite only.
A highlight of Ophthalmology Tech Summit will be an interview of David Endicott, CEO of Alcon, conducted by Jim Mazzo, Executive Chairman, Neurotech. Other featured panels include Current State and Future Outlook of the Ophthalmic Landscape and Innovation Leadership Panels in both Device and Pharma.
The conference will conclude with Octane’s annual Company Presentations.

These companies represent the next generation of ophthalmic solutions with innovations in pharmaceuticals, glaucoma, retinal disease treatment and device.
