NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Bausch + Lomb Corporation (NYSE/TSX: BLCO), a  global eye health company, announced on Thursday at Optometry’s Meeting that Blink NutriTears, a clinically proven over-the-counter supplement that the company said targets the key root causes of dry eyes, promotes healthy tear production and provides relief of eye dryness symptoms in as little as two to four weeks, will be available at most major retailers by the end of next month. Developed in collaboration with eyecare and nutritional experts, Blink NutriTears is formulated with a proprietary blend of ingredients, including lutein, zeaxanthin, curcumin and vitamin D, which were shown to improve ocular symptom severity and tear film homeostasis, the announcement said.

Blink NutriTears was also shown to clinically help tears stay on the eyes for 33 percent longer, the company said. The supplement is recommended as a complement to an everyday dry eye management plan.

“Blink NutriTears promotes tear production and helps to keep patients’ eyes healthy,” said Eileen Dolan, director of professional marketing at Bausch + Lomb.

The company also announced that it expects to start shipping INFUSE for Astigmatism daily disposable contact lenses fitting sets to eyecare professionals in July 2024. Engineered with a next-generation lens material infused with ProBalance Technology and the company’s proprietary OpticAlign design, INFUSE for Astigmatism provides astigmatic patients clear, stable vision, all-day comfort and minimizes contact lens dryness, according to Bausch + Lomb.

The company also announced that it will be kicking off a dry eye campaign next month.
