Alcon (eye care)

Enhancing sight to enhance lives

Alcon's leadership is grounded in cutting-edge innovation and breakthrough technology, transforming the way we treat eye diseases and conditions. Offering the widest spectrum of industry leading products that address the full life cycle of eye care needs, Alcon is organized into three businesses: Surgical, Pharmaceutical and Vision Care.

Infinti System - Alcon


Alcon offers the industry's most complete line of ophthalmic surgical products, enabling surgeons to achieve optimal results for their patients. The company's surgical portfolio includes technologies and devices for cataract, retinal, glaucoma and refractive surgery, as well as advanced technology intraocular lenses (AT-IOLs) to treat cataracts including refractive errors, like presbyopia and astigmatism. We also provide viscoelastics, surgical solutions, surgical packs, and other disposable products for cataract and vitreoretinal surgery.

Ophthalmic Pharmaceuticals

The Alcon pharmaceutical portfolio includes treatment options for glaucoma, vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) and vitreomacular traction (VMT) including macular hole, bacterial infections and bacterial conjunctivitis, inflammation, and pain associated with ocular surgery. The product portfolio also includes eye and nasal allergy treatments, and over-the-counter dry eye relief and ocular vitamins.

Vision Care

The Alcon Vision Care portfolio offers daily disposable, monthly replacement and color-enhancing contact lenses for comfortable and convenient vision correction options. We also have a complete line of contact lens care products. These include multi-purpose and hydrogen-peroxide based solutions to clean, rinse and disinfect contact lenses; rewetting drops to provide added comfort throughout the day; and daily protein remover that removes protein deposits from lenses.

Alcon truly serves the full life cycle of patient needs across eye diseases and vision conditions.
