Optimo Medical AG

team from above smallOptimo Medical AG was founded in September 2015 as a spin-off company of Integrated Scientific Services - ISS AG (www.iss-ag.ch), a service provider with over 12 Years of experience in the field of regulatory affairs, engineering support, quality management and software design, mainly in medical technology and focused in eye medicine. The Optimeyes project was born from a CTI project between ISS AG and the University of Berne.

Since its founding, Optimo Medical has been able to achieve many milestones, like the QMS ISO 13485 certification in 2016, various awards, for example the de Vigier Award in 2017, and finally, the CE certification and market introduction of our software as a medical device OptimeyesTM. In this time, our multidisciplinary team has grown constantly, adding specialists from various areas, depending on the business needs. Please do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any questions about our company or products. We are always happy to help.
