(PRESS RELEASE) BRIDGEWATER, NJ — Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health business of Bausch Health Companies Inc. (NYSE/TSX: BHC), announced the U.S. launch of the -2.75 cylinder parameter offering for Biotrue ONEday for Astigmatism daily disposable contact lenses, the first and only toric daily disposable with a -2.75 cylinder. This new parameter offering will be available for same day fitting in a standard fit set. The addition will offer eye care professionals and their astigmatic patients the most toric parameters of any daily disposable lens.

“The new -2.75 cylinder for Biotrue ONEday for Astigmatism lens is testament to our continued commitment to deliver practical innovation that helps people living with astigmatism achieve excellent visual acuity,” said John Ferris, vice president and general manager, U.S. Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. “Only approximately one quarter of astigmatic patients wear daily disposable lenses, in part due to lack of parameter availability. With this new cylinder offering, eye care professionals can offer a lens solution to more toric patients than ever before.”

The -2.75 cylinder will be available for patients with astigmatism, in six different axes:

“The Biotrue ONEday family of lenses offer an excellent combination of features that I always look for in a contact lens,” said Mile Brujic, O.D., Premier Vision Group, Bowling Green, OH. “With the addition of the -2.75 cylinder for Biotrue ONEday for Astigmatism lenses, I can provide more of my patients with the benefits that this toric lens offers, including the convenience of same-day fitting and the all-day comfort they expect from a daily disposable lens.”

Like other products in the Biotrue ONEday brand family, Biotrue ONEday for Astigmatism lenses have more moisture than any other leading contact lens and maintain nearly 100 percent of that moisture for a full 16 hours.1 Biotrue ONEday for Astigmatism contact lenses offer an evolved peri-ballast design, featuring a tapered edge to limit lid interaction, and spherical aberration control to help reduce halos and glare, particularly in low light conditions. The lenses are also fast to fit with excellent centration at dispensing and follow-up.
