We know sight is a precious gift, and we thank you for allowing Alcon to help enhance your sight and improve your life.

In 1945, Robert Alexander and William Conner opened a small pharmacy in Fort Worth, Texas. When they incorporated and began manufacturing specialty pharmaceutical products in 1947 they were unknown, the company was unknown and their products were unknown. They called Alcon, “the impossible dream.”
70 years later we know that it was not an impossible dream, but a dream that has been brought to life through the dedication and perseverance of every person that has played a role in this organization and shared in our commitment to enhancing sight and improving lives around the world.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to making this company a global leader in eye care. Thank you to everyone who has worked tirelessly to help us fulfill our vision. And thank you to the partners and practitioners who connect us with patients and have been our partners in reimagining eye care.
