Bausch and Lomb

Bausch and Lomb is a US-based company that specializes in optical health care products. It began in Rochester, New York, hundreds of years ago in 1853. A German immigrant named John Jacob Bausch started an optical goods shop. When the shop grew, he borrowed money from his friend Henry Lomb. Thus, a partnership was formed.

The Bausch and Lomb brand has a long history of innovation with optical products. Bausch and Lomb began with manufacturing rubber eyeglass frames. Later on, they began working with microscopes, binoculars, and camera shutters. As a matter of fact, Bausch and Lomb developed the lenses that first took satellite pictures of the moon! Bausch and Lomb also is the pioneer of the first soft contact lenses.

Today, because of their dedication to innovation, quality, and craftsmanship, Bausch and Lomb continues to be the largest international provider of eye health care products.

Eye Care

We know that the eyes are very important organs of the body, even for babies, because they provide us with the ability to see. However, like the rest of the body, the eyes can be afflicted with different conditions because of various factors.

A few examples of vision problems are short-sightedness or myopia, long-sightedness or hyperopia, and astigmatism. These vision problems are often inherited and discovered during childhood. During the teenage years, these vision problems often get worse.

A person with short-sightedness can only see clearly if the object is close, while a person with long-sightedness can only see clearly is the object is from a distance. On the other hand, a person with astigmatism can’t see clearly even if the object is near or far. These problems can be treated with LASIK laser technology. However, the more common form of treatment is wearing spectacles or contact lenses.

What are the benefits of Bausch and Lomb products?

The Bausch and Lomb brand offers nutritional supplements that are specially formulated to maintain healthy eyes and support eye health. The Bausch and Lomb Ocuvite Lutein contains antioxidants, zinc, selenium, lutein/ zeaxanthin, and vitamins C and E.

The main component of this supplement is lutein and zeaxanthin, which are naturally-occurring carotenoids that can be found in vegetables like broccoli and spinach. Lutein is often called “the eye vitamin,” and rightly so because it can prevent eye diseases like age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by increasing the thickness of the macula. It can lower the risk of developing cataracts and retinitis pigmentosa. Aside from this, lutein reduces eye fatigue and sensitivity to glare. It promotes visual function and visual acuity by strengthening eye tissue. All of this can ward off vision loss.

The Bausch and Lomb brand also offers artificial tears and lubricant products that provide fast-acting and instant moisture for dry and irritated eyes. These products contain two organic and non-toxic lubricants: glycerine and propylene glycol. These lubricants keep the eyes moist, thereby protecting against injury and infection. Furthermore, it lowers the chances of acquiring dry eyes and symptoms like burning and itching eyes. Aside from that, the lubricant glycerine can reduce “corneal haze” or the opaque appearance of the cornea by removing the water.

In addition, the Bausch and Lomb line has multi-purpose solutions for people who wear contact lenses. These solutions allow for proper cleaning and disinfecting and are safe for all lenses. These solutions are formulated to work with natural tears.
