Companies spotlighted in the article include Allergan Inc., Eyeonics (sold to Bausch & Lomb last year and now known as Bausch & Lomb Surgical), WaveTec Vision Systems, and Glaukos Corp.The geographic concentration makes sense, because it keeps the sector's talent in one place, allowing it to easily jump from firm to firm, or start new ones.
