New Position to Help Change Future of Company and Eye Banking
(Winston-Salem, NC) – Miracles In Sight (MIS), one of the largest eye banks in the world is proud to announce it has promoted Isaac Perry to Director of Research and Development. Perry previously served as Director of Clinical Services at MIS.
In this newly created position, Perry is moving from the core, day-to-day operations of the eye bank to one that’s focused on the company’s future growth.
“I’ll be developing new products and services we can offer to both our current corneal surgeon partners and new customers,” Perry says. “The eye banking industry is maturing, and we are looking forward to ways we can contribute to advancement in our field.”
“Through Isaac’s role, MIS will be able to expand our services beyond traditional eye banking,” says Brenda Horn, Vice President of Business Development. “We can now look at products and services directed beyond the sole discipline of cornea that support our mission of restoration, preservation, and enhancement of sight through transplant, research and innovation – making it possible to help a wider base of patients who suffer from different sources of sight impairment.”
Perry is looking forward to using his extensive background in eye banking in this new position. He began at MIS more than eight years ago as a lab technician, working his way up to supervisor and management roles. He has a BS in Biology from UNC-Chapel Hill, an MBA from Wake Forest University, and has completed his core coursework for an Masters in Public Health from UNC-Chapel Hill’s Gillings School of Global Public Health. He is also planning on taking the Project Management Institute’s (PMI)® prestigious Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification exam in the coming months.
“I’ve always been intrigued by abstract concepts and solving problems,” Perry says. “I’m excited to use a combination of my business and medical backgrounds to drive the future of MIS. Historically, we’ve provided a safe cornea for transplant. With a new Director of Research and Development role, we can move forward to find ways to help optimize patient and practice flow. That could reduce the number of trips required for a patient to go to various clinics. We also have the potential for new service offerings that may optimize post-operative outcomes. Additionally, our goal is to offer brand new products that are not available yet, with an emphasis being better patient care and cost savings.”
“We have accrued a wealth of knowledge in our more than half-century of experience at MIS,” Perry adds. “We’re now in a position to use that to collaborate with our doctors to improve cost, quality and access to healthcare for patients we serve in new and different ways.”
