The certification for the Ukrainian market marks a first and significant milestone in entering the Eastern European market.

This certification enables the Ukrainian eyecare specialist community to have access to a complete portfolio of swiss-made specialty lenses, all delivered directly to the Ukraine eye care professionals. First contracts have been signed and a local customer service is already being established.

Ukraine, with a population of over 40 million people, has a significant need for specialty products such as orthokeratology, keratoconus, scleral and hybrid lenses. At present there are well-trained contact lens specialists, but only a few registered products in this field.

Our local representative with support from fellow Ukrainian eyecare specialists, helped the project leader, Lisa Kurischev, guide the registration process and achieve a successful outcome.

CEO Philippe Käppeli expresses his gratitude to the individuals involved in this important step for the company.
