As part of our mission we have a responsibility to provide innovative products that enhance quality of life by helping people see better. Alcon also extends this responsibility to the way in which we support eye care practitioners and their support teams.


Alcon is committed to researching and developing new products that address the unmet medical needs of patients. Our scientists explore options for superior vision and comfort through lens design and innovative technologies and materials. Großwallstadt was the birthplace of both our DAILIES TOTAL1® and DAILIES® AquaComfort PLUS® family of contact lenses and is the home of our LightStream® Manufacturing platform.  



Opened in 1989 and located outside the city of Frankfurt, the site employs more than 1,200 Alcon associates focused on production, distribution and research and development of Alcon lenses. The facility has consistently grown and currently produces several hundred million DAILIES contact lenses every year.

Alcon takes pride in the quality of its contact lenses and Großwallstadt uses a comprehensive management system to ensure outstanding quality for your contact lens wearers. Each contact lens is checked several times during the manufacturing process and is automatically rejected if material, size, shape, edge quality, centre thickness and optical qualities do not meet our high quality criteria.


Our tour and educational visit of the facility offers the opportunity to see a snapshot of what it takes to produce our high quality lenses and experience some of what happens behind the scenes to get Alcon contact lenses to practice and patients. The visit promises to be highly interesting and educational, as well as a good opportunity to network with fellow delegates. We are also pleased to be able to offer 4 CET points as part of this meeting.
