About Laboratoires Théa
Laboratoires Théa is an independent pharmaceutical company specialised in the research, development and commercialisation of eye care products. Théa was founded by Henri Chibret, a fourth-generation member of a French ophthalmology dynasty born in the nineteenth century.
Set up in 1994 from an R&D start-up company, Théa has played an important role in the latest pharmacological advances and in less than 10 years has risen to become the leading independent eye care group in Europe. Henri and Jean Frédéric Chibret (a fifth generation member of the dynasty) have presided over the group since 2008.
Its head office is based in Clermont-Ferrand, in the middle of France and is at the heart of a network comprising twenty-five subsidiaries worldwide over 1,100 employees.

The ABAK bottle
The ABAK bottle: Henri Chibret, continuing the tradition of innovation, is developing new packaging for eye drops. In 1996 he launched the first preservative-free multidose bottle contents sterile for a period of 2 to 3 months. The hazardous effects of preservatives including benzalkonium chloride are thus avoided. Ironically, Henri Chibret eliminated the use of preservatives that his own father had introduced.
