Pharmacia & Upjohn is setting up a plant in Bangalore, India, to manufacture one-piece intra-ocular lenses (IOLs). The company will spend $8.8 million on the factory, which is part of Pharmacia's expansion plans in India. The company started in India a year ago and now employs some 250 people. Indian surgeons presently use the three-piece IOL and the one-piece is considered a good alternative, according to Pharmacia.
