    Dr. Mali's top 5 predictions in ophthalmology for 2017

     

    5) There will be more mergers/acquisitions in the ophthalmology industry 

    Johnson & Johnson's acquisition of Abbott Medical Optics (AMO) was an impressive and bold corporate maneuver to gain additional exposure in the rapidly growing and dynamic ophthalmic industry. In my opinion, this seems like the beginning of additional pharmaceutical giants acquiring key players in the ophthalmic industry to gain market share in our innovative sector. I would not be surprised to see another big merger like this in 2017.

    The great thing about making predictions is that it is basically a win-win proposition: if you are correct in your predictions, you are celebrated for being a sage. If you are incorrect, you have the opportunity to learn from them and make better predictions for the next year. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and a successful 2017!
