Bausch & Lomb Provides Information Regarding U.S. Sales of ReNu® with MoistureLoc® Solution


Rochester, NY --- Bausch & Lomb (NYSE:BOL) earlier today announced that it is temporarily suspending U.S. shipments of ReNu® with MoistureLoc® lens care solutions produced in its Greenville, S.C., manufacturing facility. In an effort to provide investors with assistance in understanding the magnitude of revenues derived from the ReNu with MoistureLoc solutions, the company indicated that the product generated sales of approximately $45 million in the United States in 2005.

Yes, it is about our eyes. These are the guidelines from the American Optometric Association regarding contact lense:

  • Carefully and regularly clean contact lenses, as directed by an optometrist and the patient information included with lens care products.

  • Rub the contact lenses with fingers and rinse thoroughly before soaking the lenses overnight in enough multi-purpose solution to completely cover the lens.

  • Store lenses in the proper case and replace the lens storage case every three months. Clean the contact lens case after each use and keep the case open and dry between cleanings.

  • Use the proper products to clean and disinfect contact lenses as recommended by your optometrist. Remember that saline solutions and rewetting drops are not designed to disinfect lenses.

  • Only fresh solution should be used to clean and disinfect contact lenses. Never re-use old solution. Contact lens solution must be changed every day, even if the lenses are not used daily.

  • Always replace old contacts when you get a new contact prescription.
