Alcon has one mission: to provide innovative products that enhance quality of life by helping people see better. The merger with Novartis in 2011 helped them do this by uniting the strengths of Alcon, CIBA VISION and Novartis Ophthalmics into one Alcon eye care business, which is now the second-largest division of Novartis. This enables them to serve their customers through the full life cycle of patient needs across eye diseases, vision conditions and refractive errors.
Alcon was founded in 1945 in Fort Worth, Texas, USA. The company started as a small pharmacy in Fort Worth and was named for its founders, pharmacists Robert Alexander and William Conner. Conner and Alexander focused on sterile ophthalmic products, which no other company specialized in at the time and built their business by researching eye care products that would reduce contamination and increase safety.
