Corporate news: B&L to acquire Soothe

Bausch & Lomb Acquires Soothe® Emollient (Lubricant) Eye Drops from Alimera Sciences; Expands Product Line

In a nutshell... Bausch & Lomb acquired Soothe, renamed it Soothe XP and are building more of a brand around it with a polymer based lubricant eyedrop.

Nothing against Alimera (I like their people and I admire their success) but... I hope B&L ditches the orange and purple packaging.

This leaves Alimera to focus solely on therapeutic ophthalmics.
