Company Snapshot

Javier Okhuysen and Carlos Orellana are redefining what it means to be visionary entrepreneurs. salaUno’s goal is clear: to help prevent avoidable blindness in Mexico through its private vision centers and clinics. Taking advantage of economies of scale, innovative surgical techniques, and a vertically-integrated supply chain, salaUno provides high quality, low-cost cataract surgery and eye care services to low-income Mexicans. With an estimated two million unoperated cataracts, the market for cataract surgery is worth US$1.4 billion in Mexico alone, not including salaUno’s other eye care services. Within a year, salaUno has successfully opened a clinic in Mexico City and completed more than 2,100 cataract surgeries. salaUno already ranks in the top four Mexico City hospitals in terms of cataract surgeries performed per month.
