The below is taken from an update we shared with our investors, portfolio companies, and friends as 2020 came to a close. We share some of these reflections here as well. We're hopeful and optimistic that 2021 will bring much more positivity and wish everyone well in the new year.
As so many of us do today, we are reflecting on the past year. 2020 was a historic and tragic year by any measure though not without silver linings. We're focusing on several positive accomplishments and critical milestones as we enter a new year.
These accomplishments helped us find many silver linings and remain positive throughout the year. We thank the teams of each of these companies and all of our portfolio companies for their tenacity, perseverance, and dedication to advancing ophthalmic innovation.
