Canadian acquisition giant Valeant Pharmaceuticals announced it will buy eye surgery product maker Synergetics USA for as much as $192 million.

Missouri-based Synergetics manufactures devices primarily for use in vitreoretinal surgery and neurosurgical applications. This acquisition will strengthen Bausch+Lomb business, which Valeant bought for $8.7 billion in 2013.

Earlier this week, Valeant announced that it will collaborate with AstraZeneca on psoriasis treatment brodalumab, after Amgen dropped out of the deal in May.
