Investigator-Initiated Studies + Educational Grants

Improving Patient Care + Advancing Treatment Options

Bausch + Lomb recognizes that Investigator-Initiated Studies enable research that has the potential to improve the treatment of disease, patient outcomes and the quality of health care.

Independent Research Grants empower the global research community to develop new treatments and technological advancements in ocular health. Research grants have been funded by Bausch + Lomb to improve consumer standards of care, efficacy, patient satisfaction, safety and vision performance.

Our Grants Program is conducted in accordance with the highest ethical standards and in full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and guidelines. Approval of grant funding is never related to, or conditioned upon, past prescriptions or purchases of Bausch + Lomb products. Further, we do not offer or provide grants to encourage or to reward the prescription, purchase, ordering or recommending of Bausch + Lomb products.

Bausch + Lomb is committed to improving the quality of life for patients by supporting the on-going medical and scientific education of health care professionals. Accordingly, Bausch + Lomb provides grants to support bona-fide educational programs.

Continuing Medical Education Grants contribute to the improvement of patient care and advances in the use of health care products. With our support, grand-rounds, lectures, symposiums and workshops are funded to educate ophthalmologists, optometrists, medical students, university faculty, physicians, nurse practitioners, allied health professionals, optical research scientists and associations of optometry and ophthalmology about improvements in ocular health.

The applicant certifies and provides documentation evidencing that the educational program for which they seek funding is accredited or that they are otherwise qualified to perform the proposed educational activity.
