We Are Alcon
Our Business Focus
Our leadership is grounded in cutting-edge innovation and breakthrough technology, transforming the way we treat eye diseases and eye conditions. We have the widest array of eye care offerings in the industry with products organised into two business: Surgical and Vision Care.
We offer the industry’s most complete line of ophthalmic surgical products, enabling surgeons to achieve the best results for their patients. Our surgical portfolio includes technologies and devices for cataract, retinal, refractive surgery, as well as advanced technology intraocular lenses (ATIOLs) to treat cataracts and refractive errors, like presbyopia and astigmatism. We also provide advanced viscoelastics, surgical solutions, surgical packs, and other disposable products for cataract and vitreoretinal surgery.
We are one of the largest manufacturers of contact lenses and lens care products. Our Vision Care portfolio offers a broad range of daily disposable, reusable and color-enhancing contact lenses alongside a comprehensive portfolio of ocular health products. These include products for dry eye, contact lens care and ocular allergies, as well as ocular vitamins and redness relievers.
Alcon’s corporate giving efforts, including the Alcon Foundation and Alcon Cares, help people around the world by increasing access to quality eye care, driving eye care provider training skills-transfer while strengthening the communities in which we live and work.
Access, Training, Engagement
We are committed to increasing access to quality eye care for people everywhere. Through our donations and partnerships, we help organisations deliver eye care services to hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide every year.
Increasing access to quality eye care is impossible without first expanding access to hands-on training and education. We support programs that provide learning opportunities for eye care professionals around the world.
Our people strive to make a personal difference in the world. Alcon associates worldwide help strengthen their communities by volunteering their time and resources to support local organisations that serve those communities.
