Dedicated to create best-in-class IOLs and solutions for cataract and refractive surgery. And support eye surgeons in every imaginable way to achieve their goal. That has been our main driver for 4 decades and will remain to be so.

What started with a revolutionary idea by Prof. Dr. Jan Worst has grown into a 40 year partnership with ophthalmologists around the globe. Together, we help people to see clearly.

Cataract icon


The majority of the products made by Ophtec are state-of-the-art implantable intraocular lenses (IOLs) for cataract surgery. These IOLs replace the natural lens when it has become opaque due to cataract. Ophtec offers a broad range of these lenses, monofocal as well as premium toric and presbyopia-correcting models.

Refractive icon


The unique ArtiLens phakic intraocular lenses (PIOLs) are used for refractive surgery to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. They are patented products made by Ophtec only. Ophtec was the first company worldwide to offer intraocular lenses for refractive surgery. In 2004 model Artisan Myopia was the first phakic IOL to obtain FDA approval in the US.
