Guiding principle: valuable values

The name Oertli stands for Swiss quality of the highest precision and reliability. We develop and produce our products exclusively in Switzerland, in the St. Gall Rhine Valley. Thanks to this, we can rely on excellently trained employees and a dynamic environment and have the quality and conditions of our products under our own control.

By manufacturing high-quality devices and instruments and providing first class services, we create real added value. In the course of its company history, Oertli has developed numerous innovations that have had a sustainable impact on eye surgery. Such success, however, does not make us slow down – on the contrary. We spend every day refreshing our research spirit making sure our innovative thirst will have new challenges again and again.

Although we are present in the whole world and gear ourselves towards the international market, in our hearts, we will always remain an independent family business with a good backbone, strong roots, solid financing and active teamwork. Anyone who works for Oertli does so with great commitment and motivation. As everyone gives their best, we can position ourselves on the market with great confidence. On this basis, we make the difference – for eye surgery, for our customers, and for patients.

Mission: ambitious goals

In the development of our surgical platforms and instruments, we continually strive to open up new paths in eye surgery. With our surgical platforms and instruments, we actively care that surgical interventions become safer, easier, more effective and successful than they have been. Our devices can be used under the most difficult conditions and make cutting-edge eye surgery accessible to as many people as possible.

We take our mission seriously. There is only room for what brings benefits to patients and creates added value for surgeons. Even if Oertli can look back on a long tradition, we consistently focus on what lies ahead of us. We want to create the tomorrow, we want to make an impact on the future of eye surgery and contribute to improving eye health in the whole world.
