Vissum Grupo Miranza has been a leader in Alicante’s ophthalmology for 30 years. Founded by Dr Jorge Alió, the clinic has since maintained its vocation as a comprehensive center, with professionals who are experts in all eye diseases, both in the anterior segment and the retina, as well as in glaucoma and pediatric ophthalmology, among others areas of expertise. The clinic is an international benchmark in the treatment of corneal pathologies, particularly corneal transplants, and is a forerunner in advanced refractive surgery techniques to correct presbyopia, myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, even making it possible to correct high prescriptions and treat corneal aberrations.

Vissum is responsible for the VEMoS software development, upgrading, and final prototyping for final testing in internal and independent clinical trials. In addition, as project coordinator, Vissum will ensure a smooth development and facilitate communication among partners and with the EC. Vissum will also develop a dissemination and communication plan to maximize project impact.
