MOLTENO Ophthalmic Ltd is a privately owned New Zealand company and proud to be a world leader in research, development and production of ophthalmic implants for treating glaucoma and other eye conditions.

From it's base in the charming university city of Dunedin, the staff at MOLTENO Ophthalmic combine the results of decades of research, testing and detailed patient follow-up by Professor Anthony Molteno and his international colleagues to produce products of great integrity such as the Molteno3® Glaucoma Implant, the treatment of choice for severe or complex cases of glaucoma. Professor Anthony Molteno's pioneering and award winning work has transformed the outcomes for people suffering from severe glaucoma all over the world.

MOLTENO Ophthalmic also produces the M-Sphere® intraorbital implant, the most porous and biocompatable of all orbital implants. The M-Sphere implant's hydroxyapatite matrix is rapidly and completely incorporated into the orbital tissues so that the implant is more resistant to infection and other complications, moves well and provides an excellent cosmetic outcome when an ocular prosthesis is subsequently fitted (11).

The Company's Class 7 Cleanroom facility is located in the heart of Dunedin, New Zealand’s Biotech Capital. MOLTENO Ophthalmic has ISO 13485 accreditation and all MOLTENO glaucoma implants are FDA approved and have CE certification for use within the European Union.

MOLTENO Ophthalmic's products are distributed through a network of distributors in the USA, Australasia, Europe, Russia, Africa, South America and Asia.
