Rochester, N.Y. - Bausch & Lomb has filed paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a proposed initial public offering of common stock.
The company filed to raise $100 million, but that could change.
It's unclear whether Bausch & Lomb will sell shares in the offering.
The eye health company was a public entity until 2007, when private equity firm Warburg Pincus made Bausch & Lomb a private company. The move to become private followed some financial troubles for Bausch & Lomb.
