The company was part of a court battle.

Bausch + Lomb is putting an end to its universal pricing policy for contacts, also known as UPP, Healio reports.

The decision is the result of a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, where Bausch & Lomb, Alcon Laboratories Inc. and Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Inc. have challenged Utah’s Contact Lens Consumer Protection Act.

The court ruled in December that the law can be enforced while the litigation is ongoing.

Bausch & Lomb said in a recent statement that the law "has created a competitive imbalance by permitting Utah-based customers to sell contact lenses at rates below those who sell our contact lenses in other states,” according to Healio.

The company said it's "disappointed" in the court ruling.
