Alcon and Advanced Medical Optics (AMO) are to share proprietary information on their designs for intraocular lenses (IOL). The companies have entered into a patent cross-licensing agreement on lubricious coatings for IOL inserters and designs for one-piece haptics.

Alcon has granted AMO a license to its "Single Piece Foldable Intraocular Lens" patent, insofar as the information relates to AMO's Tecnis One-Piece IOL. In return, AMO has granted Alcon a license to its patents "IOL Insertion Apparatus with Covalently Bonded Lubricant" and "IOL Insertion Apparatus and Method for Making and Using Same".
