The number of performed femtosecond laser operations exceeded 30.000.
«There is nothing more important than feeling healthy» - Oleg Zherebtsov noted in his speech. He appreciated the specialists for their noble work and said that Solopharm for the entire period of its existence has produced 34 drugs for eye diseases treatment. These medicines are actively exported, and the company's production facilities develop annually in different therapeutic niches.
Oleg Zherebtsov also emphasized the importance of high-quality domestic medicines development. In his opinion, it is especially important, when citizens have the financial opportunity to purchase them, so Solopharm uses all resources to make the costs of treatment acceptable.
