FOR RELEASE 9/10/2007, Monday

Special Meeting of Shareholders: Media Logistics

WHAT:                Bausch & Lomb Special Meeting of Shareholders


WHEN:                Friday, September 21, 2007


TIME:                   Please arrive to register by 9:30 a.m.

                              The meeting will begin promptly at 10 a.m.


WHERE:              Clarion Hotel Riverside (Bausch Ballroom)
                             120 East Main Street
                             Rochester, NY 14604


CREDENTIALS:       For journalists who have not been previously credentialed by Bausch & Lomb,
                                   you must provide at least one of the following:

                                   • A current press photo ID from an acknowledged media outlet;

                                   • A publication masthead (original) listing you as an editorial contributor;

                                   • A published industry-related article from the last six months with your name in
                                     the byline.    


LOGISTICS:          All media must be credentialed prior to entering the meeting room. Credentialing
                               will take place beginning at 8:30 a.m.


                             Since this is a shareholder meeting — not a news conference — questions will only be
                             taken from shareholders. Questions or comments from journalists must be reserved
                             for after the meeting.


                            Recording devices — both video and audio — are not permitted in the meeting room
                            under any circumstances. Pre- and post-meeting stand-ups may be conducted outside
                            the meeting room in hotel common areas.


                            Bausch & Lomb officials will not conduct pre-meeting interviews.


                            At Bausch & Lomb’s discretion, a brief media-only Q&A session with CEO Ron Zarrella
                            may take place on-site shortly following the meeting. Recording devices will be
                            permitted, and cameras/microphones may be staged in the Q&A room beginning at
                            8:30 a.m. (note: we will not use a multi-box). Requests for individual interviews with
                            Mr. Zarrella will not be granted at this time.


                            The Clarion Riverside is currently undergoing renovations, and its back parking lot will
                            not be able to accommodate broadcast news trucks. Please be prepared to make
                            alternate parking arrangements.


                           RSVP: To ensure adequate seating, media who plan to attend should notify
                           Bausch & Lomb by Wednesday, September 19.
