Bausch + Lomb Introduces Enhanced Online Rebate Program

Refreshed Portal Provides ECPs and Patients a User-Friendly Submission Process and the Opportunity to Support the Optometry Giving Sight Organization

 

FOR RELEASE MONDAY, JULY 11, 2016 


BRIDGEWATER, NJ – Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, today announced the introduction of its updated rebate website for its portfolio of contact lenses, offering patients and eye care professionals a more streamlined user experience to obtain timely redemptions. The newly designed program will also make it possible for patients to use a portion of their rebate to directly support Optometry Giving Sight, a global foundation dedicated to preventing blindness and impaired vision. The site’s launch coincides with the introduction of a mail-in rebate offer for products across
Bausch + Lomb’s contact lens portfolio.

“We are committed to providing eye care professionals and their patients the best opportunity to afford our innovations in contact lenses,” said Guy Guglielmino, vice president of marketing, U.S. Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. This simpler, easier-to-use portal, will simplify the lens rebate process for eye care professionals, as well as patients.”

The website works seamlessly on digital devices, including smartphones and tablets, and features an intuitive scan and upload functionality that provides patients with the options to complete and submit their rebate forms online or print and mail rebate submissions. These features allow users to more easily track rebates and redeem them up to two weeks faster.  Patients will also have access to a customer service representative via live chat, e-mail or phone and can choose to donate part or their entire rebate to Optometry Giving Sight.

"We are honored that Bausch + Lomb continues to support Optometry Giving Sight through their rebate program," said Clive Miller, chief executive officer, Optometry Giving Sight. "Donations we receive through the initiative will help us to continue to improve the lives of those in underserved communities, by training eye care professionals and providing access to vision care products and services for those who need them most."

After receiving an eye exam, the mail-in rebate offer will save patients up to $130 on select Bausch + Lomb contact lenses, including Bausch + Lomb ULTRA®, Biotrue® ONEday and SofLens® daily disposable lenses. This offer will be valid from July 1 – December 31, 2016. For more information, patients can visit www.BauschRebates.com.
