Please Note: These are all very early Bausch & Lomb production from the 1960s and 1970s. We apply the highest possible condition standards we can to still be able to offer such rarities, but if you expect them to look shiny and new - and if we ever saw them like that we'd know with almost total certainty they were fakes - you should buy something else.
