Abbott Medical Optics Inc. is focused on providing the full range of advanced technologies and support to help eye care professionals deliver optimal vision and lifestyle experiences to patients of all ages.

We do this by providing a differentiated suite of advanced products and services designed to address vision disorders at all stages of life. We offer market-leading technologies for myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia, cataract, spherical aberration and corneal health, and proven educational and support programs that help eye care professionals master refractive technologies and grow their practices.

Discovering New Ways to Correct Vision

Innovation is our lifeblood as it continually renews our relevance and differentiation in the market. In 2010, we launched RevitaLens OcuTec® Multi-purpose Disinfecting Solution for soft contact lenses, as well as a new Tecnis® Multi-Focal 1-Piece intraocular lens for cataract patients.

This year, we launched the Micro-Implantation Cataract Suite, designed to help improve cataract procedure outcomes and safety. Consisting of five components, the Micro-Implantation Cataract Suite enables the surgeon to perform an entire micro-surgical procedure.

Providing a Correct Solution to Customers

We deliver our products through three complementary businesses.
v Our Corneal business offers contact lens disinfection, cleaning and wetting solutions that protect and lubricate ocular surfaces, relieve dryness and irritation and increase overall comfort.

  • As the world’s No. 1 laser vision correction company, we offer refractive practices the industry’s most advanced technologies, which are designed to achieve superior visual outcomes with fewer complications, enhance surgeon productivity and break down consumer fears regarding LASIK treatments.
  • Our Cataract business addresses needs of patients suffering from cataracts and presbyopia. We provide ultrasonic lens removal systems, viscoelastics, aspheric IOLs that provide improved functional vision.

Our ability to link our businesses together to form a potent technological offering is our differentiation in the market and the cornerstone of our complete refractive solution approach. For more information, visit the company’s Web site at www.abbottmedicaloptics.com.
