Asia Pacific and Africa

Valeant develops and markets a wide range of OTC products, prescription medicines and medical devices to a number of countries and regions in Asia Pacific, including China, Japan, South Korea, India, Australia, South Africa and Southeast Asia.

With the 2013 acquisition of Bausch + Lomb, Valeant’s footprint in Asia more than doubled, as Bausch + Lomb has successfully built an undeniably strong brand in most Asia Pacific markets  -- particularly in  Greater China, Korea and Japan. Bausch + Lomb was the first company to introduce contact lenses into China, where the company name is used as a synonym for contact lens. Vision care growth in China has been driven by the demand for clear contact lenses, lens care products and cosmetic lenses.
