Altacor was formed in 2006 by two co-founders and has grown into a reputable and respected company within the ophthalmic industry.
Its first product was Clinitas
, which was launched in 2007. This product was one of the first sodium hyaluronate based dry eye products on the market. It also helped the trend in offering preservative free formulations of frequently used eye drops. Since then, the Clinitas brand has gone from strength to strength, with various products now available in the prescription and over the counter sectors.
In recent years Altacor has added to its portfolio buy focusing on the surgical market. In 2016 Altacor added BioLon to its portfolio, a well known brand within the ophthalmic viscoelastic category. In 2017, it added punctum plugs to its increasing range of dry eye treatments.
