TVM Capital Healthcare, The Fred Hollows Foundation, Australia, and Japan’s Rohto Pharmaceutical have finalised a substantial equity investment in Vietnamese eye care provider Alina Vision.
Alina Vision was established by The Fred Hollows Foundation, an international development organisation, in 2018.
It offers affordable eye health services through a network of eye surgery centres to address the needs of underserved communities.
Over the last five years, The Fred Hollows Foundation and Rohto Pharmaceutical have supported Alina Vision with financial investment, eye surgery training, and clinical assistance, helping the company grow to more than 80 employees and two eye hospitals in Vietnam.
According to TVM Capital Healthcare, a specialist growth capital investor in the healthcare industry, Alina Vision performed more than 2,800 cataract surgeries last year and is now planning to extend its reach across Vietnam, significantly increasing its capacity.
With the demand for cataract surgeries expected to outpace the current supply of services, the latest investment by TVM will provide Alina Vision with additional operational, clinical, training, and management resources to accelerate its expansion and enhance the quality of care.
