Public statement regarding recent lawsuit settlement

Topcon Healthcare is pleased to announce we have reached a positive resolution to a lawsuit with Carl Zeiss Meditec that has been a distraction for over four years. 

Topcon made a strategic decision to settle ongoing litigation with Zeiss to remove the distraction and allow us to focus on our mission to serve our customers and help improve access and quality of care while reducing the overall cost of care. 

We are known for quality products and quality people.  We intend to continue delivering value and intelligent solutions to our customers and the healthcare market. 

Topcon admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement.  During the (4 years of) litigation almost all of Zeiss’s claims were dismissed or withdrawn.  The final settlement relates to a legacy version of Harmony (which has not been actively licensed by Topcon for several years).  Customers using our current product, Harmony RS, are not affected by the settlement, and none of the devices or software that we are promoting or plan to implement in the future are affected by the conditions in the settlement in any way.
