Bausch + Lomb Aims to Shine a Light on Dry Eye Disease and Its Impact on Everyday Life offers educational insights on dry eye disease.




(PRESS RELEASE) VAUGHAN, ON – Bausch + Lomb Corporation (NYSE/TSX: BLCO), a leading global eye health company dedicated to helping people see better to live better, announced it will kick off a new social media campaign designed to increase the understanding of dry eye disease (DED), one of the most common ocular surface disorders that impacts more than 38 million Americans, and the role of tear evaporation as a leading driver of the disease. The campaign, which will run throughout the month of July during National Dry Eye Awareness Month, is designed to educate eye care professionals and consumers about DED and foster physician-patient dialogue on this multifactorial disease.

“Dry eye disease has been traditionally known to impact older adults, but over the past decade eye care professionals have seen an increase in younger adult patients as a result of their multi-screen lifestyles, which is a major contributor of the disease,” said Andrew Stewart, president, Pharmaceuticals, Bausch + Lomb. “As the face of dry eye disease evolves, so does the need for education and awareness, which is why we believe it’s important to provide eye care professionals and their patients with actionable information and insights.”

Throughout July, Bausch + Lomb will post educational content and resources on its social media pages, including information on how people with DED are significantly more likely to report problems with performing everyday activities, such as reading, using a computer, watching television and driving. The campaign will also highlight the prevalence of excessive tear evaporation, which is experienced by approximately nine in 10 patients who suffer from DED.3

“If tear evaporation is not addressed, dry eye disease can worsen by triggering a cycle of ocular surface damage and inflammation. The goal of this campaign is to spark dialogue between eye care professionals and their patients to address the root cause of this issue,” Stewart continued.
