Dr. Eli Fischer is one of Israel’s top brands for eye care and more. In his embattled homeland, Dr. Eli Fischer went from teaching blind children and treating the eyes and skin of Israeli soldiers to building a global pharmaceutical company. Eli Fischer was born in Carlsbad, Czechoslovakia and came to Israel with his family at the age of 3.
He earned his master’s degree cum laude from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, following which he was accepted for doctoral studies at Harvard. Later, after receiving a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of California, he decided to return to Israel, where he subsequently established an innovative plant for producing new types of medications under the name of “Dr. Fischer, Inc.”, today a well-known brand name. His private life and community work are an integral part of his scientific and business achievement. Eli Fischer, scientist, industrialist and well-known brand name, grew up in Tel – Aviv. Dr. Fischer Upfront is his story.
It is the story of a child running barefoot in the streets of Tel – Aviv, evading British soldiers during the time of the Mandate, a boy who loved animals and flew kites, a student who suddenly discovered the opposite sex and medicinal plants, a young man who taught blind children and brought them into a world they could not see, and an outstanding doctoral candidate in the U.S. who chose to return to Israel to build his home.
It is the story of a home and family, of grief and joy, of obstacles and successes – a revealing and gripping chronicle of life covering decades of growth of not only his own struggle and achievements, but also those of Jewish Palestine and the State of Israel. Dr. Fischer’s courageous and enterprising spirit helped him succeed in realizing his dream of establishing a plant for the producing medications that would prolong life and improve its quality.
It is a narrative of a long journey on a road which led far beyond what he had ever imagined.
Dr. Fischer manufactures over 1,000 products, employs an extensive staff of scientists with over 700 personnel in plants, offices and laboratories. Many company products are marketed through Dr. Fischer’s own chain of 45 natural health stores. The company maintains a strong international presence and is represented in over 30 foreign markets and are now making a big push in America.
