The Ophthalmology business area is subdivided into two business units: the Ophthalmology systems unit covers a range of laser and diagnostic systems for ophthalmology, and the Surgical Ophthalmology unit combines the Company’s activities in the field of ophthalmic implants and disposables. The Microsurgery business area offers surgical microscopes and visualization solutions for ear, nose and throat surgery, or neurosurgery. Its microsurgery products are mainly used as supporting equipment for the removal of tumors, as well as the treatment of vascular diseases and functional disorders.
