Bausch + Lomb Acquires Doctor’s Allergy Formula Diagnostic System




(Press Release) Bausch + Lomb has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Doctor’s Allergy Formula, LLC, which will be integrated under the company’s pharmaceuticals division.

The FDA-approved in-office Doctor’s Allergy Formula test enables eye care practitioners to objectively diagnose and identify the root cause of patient’s ocular allergies. The three-minute ocular allergy diagnostic test utilizes a panel of 60 allergens that are specific to each region of the country and provides results within 15 minutes.

“The addition of the Doctor’s Allergy Formula to Bausch + Lomb’s Pharmaceuticals business will further enhance our diagnostic portfolio of products for eye care practitioners in the rapidly evolving segment of ocular surface disease,” Tracy Valorie, senior vice president and general manager, Bausch + Lomb Pharmaceuticals.

“We are committed to delivering meaningful products to serve the needs of the eye care community and their patients and Doctor’s Allergy Formula is just one example. We congratulate the Doctor’s Allergy Formula team for identifying and successfully addressing this important area of unmet need and look forward to working with them to bring the benefits of this innovative diagnostic test to even more of our customers.”

The knowledge obtained from the Doctor’s Allergy Formula test results can help physicians identify the offending allergens and aid physicians in developing a customized treatment protocol. The Doctor’s Allergy Formula test, which is typically covered by major medical insurances, helps to distinguish ocular surface disease pathology such as dry eyes, ocular allergies and blepharitis as routinely these signs and symptoms of OSD can be similar.

“Doctor’s Allergy Formula launched a little more than two years ago and has grown to be a leader in the diagnostic allergy market,” said Howard Loff, M.D., chief medical officer and founder of Doctor’s Allergy Formula, LLC. “With many leading eye doctors utilizing the diagnostic system today, we are excited to be joining Bausch + Lomb to bring the benefits of this innovative test to even more ophthalmologists, which I believe will soon become the standard-of-care.”
