Historical Significance: Pilkington Vision Care companies were acquired beginning in 1979 when the decision was made to expand into optical industry. The companies included Sola, Bares-Hind, Revlon, Syntex and CSI. The Sola Barnes Hind (SBH) nomenclature preceded Pilkington Barnes Hind (PBH). Wesley-Jessen acquired these companies when PBH ceased its interest in contact lenses in 1996
