On January 19, 2018, Alcon filed trademark infringement lawsuits in the Eastern District of New York against Lens.com and, Allied Vision Group & National Lens LLC: Alcon Laboratories, Inc. v. Lens.com, Inc. and Alcon Laboratories, Inc. v. Allied Vision Group and National Lens LLC.
For more than 70 years, Alcon has provided innovative solutions for eye health and vision care needs to enhance quality of life by helping people see better. As a result, the name ALCON carries with it a promise of quality, consistency, and safety that our customers and patients have come to expect. We believe patients are best served when our products are transported, stored, and distributed through clear, reliable channels, which can be achieved only when they are sold through authorized customers and distribution channels. These legal actions express Alcon’s commitment to deliver on that promise to meet the needs and expectations of both our contact lens customers and patients.
