NOTE 6 DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

In September 2011, we entered into an agreement with Optos, Inc., a subsidiary of Optos plc (collectively “Optos”) to sell our ophthalmic instrumentation business. Upon closing in October 2011, we received $17.5 million of cash and will receive royalties up to $22.5 million on future sales.

The assets and liabilities related to our instrumentation business have identifiable cash flows that are independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets and liabilities and we will not have a significant continuing involvement with the related products beyond one year after the closing of the transaction. Therefore, the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets report the assets and liabilities related to our instrumentation business as discontinued operations in all periods presented, and the results of operations related to our instrumentation business have been classified as discontinued operations in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for all periods presented.

The following table presents the major classes of assets and liabilities that have been presented as assets of discontinued operations and liabilities of discontinued operations in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets:
