Affected market: Ophthalmic business
On the basis of the information available to it, the OFT has decided
that the anticipated acquisition by Advanced Medical Optics Inc. of VISX
Incorporated does not qualify for investigation under the merger
provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002, because neither the UK turnover
test nor the share of supply test in section 23 of the Act is met. A
relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
