Optical companies are unveiling new initiatives to help eye care practices deal the the difficulties of COVID-19.  Here is a recap of what some of the companies are doing:

Bausch + Lomb Canada
Bausch + Lomb Canada are providing free home delivery of Contact Lenses direct to patients.  This initiative will assist practice staff and patients in social distancing.  All B+L Territory Managers will be working from home until further notice but will remain available to assist ECPs including handling sample requests of PreserVision® and Bepreve®.
