Our History

In 1987 Spectrum launched the OMS phaco and vitrectomy systems.  With the advent of injectable intra-ocular lenses (IOL) in the late 1980's, Spectrum brought to the UK market the first foldable IOL which could be implanted following cataract surgery via a 3.2mm incision. Spectrum were also first to the UK market with an injectable IOL, from Hoya and have been bringing new developments to the market since. Spectrum has grown to become the largest independent supplier of ophthalmic surgical and diagnostic products in the UK market.
