Allergan Expands REFRESH® Portfolio With New REFRESH® RELIEVA™ Lubricant Eye Drop Product Line
"We are pleased to expand our robust artificial tear portfolio with REFRESH® RELIEVA™ products as we continue to exemplify our commitment to innovation in eye care.

Now patients can enjoy the convenience of a multidose bottle with all the benefits of being preservative-free."
