About us

The world’s fastest growing IOL company

We are good at what we do. This is primarily due to the rich heritage and expertise in developing optical products and technologies that we have inherited from the HOYA Group coupled with the wealth knowledge that we have accumulated in developing intraocular lenses over the past 30 years. This powerful combination defines how we successfully pursue innovation, fulfill the stringent requisites of modern-day surgery, and yet raise the bar in terms of quality and best practice for our customers - eye surgeons and cataract patients.

Indeed, HOYA Surgical Optics is the world’s fastest growing IOL company and third largest IOL manufacturer globally.1
More than 6 million of our preloaded systems have been sold, thereby making us the world’s leading preloaded IOL company.2 Additionally, more than 1 million of our flagship premier product platform, Vivinex™ has been sold worldwide. 2
