About

Altomed was founded in 1976 in Gateshead, Newcastle-upon-Tyne by Tony and Dorothy Myers. Since then the company has grown rapidly to become a leading supplier of a full range of premium quality essential and innovative products in ophthalmology.

Altomed supplies instruments and medical devices of the highest quality. Our success is a function of our understanding of our customers’ needs, our manufacturing and sourcing knowledge, the responsiveness and professionalism with which we seek to satisfy our customers’ needs and strict compliance with relevant industry and regulatory requirements.

As well as our own full range of surgical instruments and sterile single-use products, we are proud to offer a wide range of products from the world’s leading suppliers, including single-use handpieces and cannulae, surgical knives, lenses and specialist products.

Today, Altomed products are manufactured and sourced both within the UK and from around the world but the company remains proudly independent and headquartered in Tyne & Wear, UK.

In a rapidly changing market Altomed remains entirely customer-focused, offering a professional yet personal level of service and an unrivalled level of industry experience.
