Contact Lenses Settlement, File Claim Before 8/22 if Eligible

Contact Lenses Settlement

Contact Lenses Settlement

This class action lawsuit was filed in regards to the minimum retail pricing policies adopted by contact lenses manufacturers starting in June 2013. The complaint, filed on March 1, 2017, alleges that the Defendants used Unilateral Pricing Policies (UPPs) to avoid competition from discount and online stores. The safety and effectiveness of contact lenses manufactured by the Defendants are not at issue in this litigation.

The affected manufacturers include Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. (“JJVCI”), Alcon Vision, LLC (“Alcon”), CooperVision, Inc. (“CVI”), ABB Concise Optical Group, LLC (“ABB”) and Bausch & Lomb Inc. (“B&L”). If you have previously summitted a claim with one of these companies, you don’t need to submit a new claim.

Who’s Eligible?

Class members who can file a claim are persons and entities residing in the United States who made retail purchases of disposable contact lenses manufactured by Alcon, JJVCI, CVI, or B&L during the Settlement Class Period for their own use and not for resale, where the prices for such contact lenses were subject to a “Unilateral Pricing Policy” and the purchase occurred during the period when the Unilateral Pricing Policy was in effect. The Settlement Class Period is from June 1, 2013 to December 4, 2018.

Settlement Payout

The Alcon and JJVCI Settlements will establish Settlement Funds of $20 million and $55 million, respectively. Customers that filed valid claims for purchases of lenses made by B&L, JJVCI and Alcon that were subject to a UPP will draw funds on a pro rata basis from all five Settlement Funds. Purchasers of lenses subject to CVI’s UPP who filed valid claims will draw funds on a pro rata basis from the CVI, ABB, Alcon, and JJVCI Settlement Funds.

There’s an estimated 40 million purchasers of disposable contact lenses that are eligible.

If you already submitted a timely and valid Proof of Claim as part of the earlier ABB, B&L, and/or CVI Settlement(s), you do not need to submit another Proof of Claim. You will automatically be included in the Alcon and JJVCI Settlements to receive a payment from the Alcon and JJVCI Net Settlement Funds. However, if you do not submit a timely and valid Proof of Claim as part of either of the ABB, B&L, and/or CVI Settlement(s), you must submit a Proof of Claim to share in the Alcon and JJVCI Net Settlement Funds by August 22, 2022. You will not be able to share in the Alcon and/or JJVCI Settlements(s) if you did not submit a timely and valid Proof of Claim.
