Ocular Sciences came public just a short while ago.

At the time, the majority of their business was in the U.S.

They have since expanded into Europe, and were just approved in the Japanese market this past week. Japan has the second largest contact lens market.

Ocular Sciences has the best disposable contact lens on the market, IMO. And they make a broad range of lenses. They also acquired American Hydron, which also makes a good and diversified line of lenses.

OCLR got a buy and strong buy recommendation this past week, had good earnings reported recently, and is near support here. Looks like downside risk is low.
