Who we are
Vitreq was established to develop and produce high quality products for the international ophthalmic industry that enable progress. Techniques in vitreoretinal surgery continuously improve; however, instrumentation has not always evolved at the same pace.
Our mission, in cooperation with leading ophthalmic surgeons worldwide, is to offer innovative and minimally-invasive products that will provide the opportunity to enhance the results of ophthalmic surgery to the benefit of both surgeon and patient.
Towards this goal, and together with globally-acclaimed surgeons in the sector, we have evaluated a wide range of existing instrumentation and considered how this compares with the relevant criteria desired. This exercise has helped us to identify valuable improvements in both efficiency and accuracy and enabled us to develop a state-of-the-art range of "next generation" vitreoretinal instrumentation, featuring both reusable and disposable products that are more closely aligned to current demand and criteria.
In July 2017 Beaver-Visitec International (BVI) has acquired Vitreq. BVI is a leading global developer, manufacturer, and marketer of specialized surgical devices for the ophthalmic market place. Vitreq’s products are available through BVI.
