Bausch & Lomb and Alcon have settled a lawsuit that was filed recently regarding Alcon's promotional claims about Bausch & Lomb's ReNu MultiPlus solution.

Bausch & Lomb claimed that Alcon's promotional use of a chart to demonstrate the safety of contact lens solutions could negatively influence patients and/or doctors. The chart shows the safety of different solutions based on corneal staining tests, rating them with a colour coding system: green is safe, yellow means use with caution and red indicates the solution is unsafe. Bausch & Lomb alleged that the chart was produced without scientific studies or clinical evidence to back it up.

Alcon has agreed to change the red/yellow colour scheme and in light of this the lawsuit has been dismissed.
