Alcon (SIX/NYSE: ALC), the global leader in eye care dedicated to helping people see brilliantly, today announced the launch of the Alcon Experience Academy (AEA) app to help optimize Eye Care Professionals’ (ECPs) digital learning experiences. The new app underscores Alcon’s global commitment to expanding remote, on-demand education and training to ECPs worldwide.

“We recognize ECPs increasingly rely on their mobile devices to get the information they need on the go,” said Rustin Floyd, Global Director, Healthcare Practitioner Education and KOL Management, Alcon. “With that in mind, there is no better way to celebrate the five-year anniversary of our flagship AEA training program than by making the invaluable education it provides as accessible as possible.”

The launch of the app brings AEA’s best-in-class education and training resources to customers’ fingertips. The customizable global platform offers ECPs courses of varying levels in 17 languages as well as newly launched podcasts and discussion forums on relevant eye care topics.

Alcon maintains nine Alcon Experience Centers around the globe, along with 26 training centers and 42 wet labs, providing access to state-of-the-art, comprehensive eye health education, and hands-on experiential learning opportunities. Building on its offerings, Alcon recently introduced its Fidelis VR Ophthalmic Surgical Simulator, a cutting-edge, portable tool that immerses cataract surgeons in a virtual, high-fidelity operating room, placing Alcon’s latest surgical innovations right at a user’s fingertips, no matter their location.
