The Oculentis GmbH / BV is pleased to have been nominated for the Dutch-German Business Award 2013. In recent weeks, 34 companies have applied for the award. The jury, consisting of board and management of the DNHK (Dutch- German Chamber of Commerce), has selected five candidates from these applicants.

The main reason for the nomination of Oculentis by the jury was the cross-border innovative power of the company, with the development of a globally unique bifocal lens from scratch to a successful marketable product. The rotationally asymmetric multifocal intraocular lens LENTIS Mplus - for the correction of presbyopia - was put on the market in 2009 and still features an unique approach to multifocality in intraocular surgery. For farsighted or presbyopic (cataract) patients, this lens is an exceptional opportunity to gain more independence from glasses and contact lenses. The new lens has led to double-digit increases in sales and made Oculentis known internationally in ophthalmology. The intraocular lens is manufactured in Eerbeek and marketed from Berlin. The idea came from Ben Wanders, the head of the Oculentis group. Much of the profits continue to flow in research and development.

The Oculentis GmbH / BV is the manufacturer of the famous LENTIS intraocular lenses with their own research and development department and one of the most modern production facilities for IOL worldwide. The medical technology company has its administration headquarters in Berlin, Germany, whereas it operates its manufacturing, research and development in Eerbeek, Netherlands.

The renowned German-Dutch Business Award is awarded by the German-Dutch Chamber of Commerce (DNHK) in The Hague. It distinguishes companies from both countries, which highlight and succeed in bilateral business.
