          THIS STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this "Agreement") is made as of
December 12, 1996 by and between Pharmos Corporation (the "Company"), a Nevada
corporation having its principal offices at 2 Innovation Drive, Alachua, FL
32615, and Bausch & Lomb Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Delaware corporation having

and the Company's Common Stock, par value $.03 per share ("Common Stock").

          B.  The Company has developed and is currently seeking approval of
certain drug products for the treatment of ophthalmic disorders.  BLP, in the
course of its association with the Company, has investigated such products as
well as other drug substances and products which may be offered by the Company,
and believes that the purchase of the Common Stock represents a sound investment
in the Company and its future growth apart from other business activities and
ventures between the Company and BLP.

          C.  Based upon BLP's review of the information provided by the
Company, BLP's discussions with representatives of the Company, BLP's
independent investigation of the Company and its reliance on the warranties and
representations made by the Company herein, BLP desires to purchase, and the
Company desires to sell, shares of Common Stock upon the terms and conditions
set forth herein.

          NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and for other good and
lawful considerations, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby
acknowledged, the parties, intending to be legally bound, do hereby agree:

of its subsidiaries has incurred any withdrawal liability under Title IV of
ERISA with respect to any Multiemployer Plan which is or would be materially
adverse to the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole.  The execution and
delivery of this Agreement and the sale of the Shares will not involve any
transaction which is subject to the prohibitions of Section 406 of ERISA or in
connection with which a tax could be imposed pursuant to Section 4975 of the
Code.  As used in this Section 2.11, the term "Plan" shall mean an "employee
pension benefit plan" (as defined in Section 392 of ERISA) which is or has been
established or maintained, or to which contributions are or have been made, by

together with the Company, is under common control, as described in Section
414(b) or (c) of the Code; and the term "Multiemployer Plan" shall mean any Plan

herein to the contrary, the obligations of the Company to cause Shares to be
registered pursuant to Sections 7.2(a) and 7.2(b) above are subject to each of
the following limitations, conditions and qualifications, as applicable:

     (a)  The Company shall not be required to give notice or include Shares in
any registration pursuant to Section 7.2(a) if the proposed Registration is
primarily:  (i) a registration of a stock option, thrift, employee benefit or
compensation plan or of securities issued or issuable pursuant to any such plan;
(ii) a registration of securities proposed to be issued in connection with a
dividend reinvestment and stock purchase plan or customer stock purchase plan;
(iii) a registration of securities proposed to be issued in exchange for
securities or assets of, or in connection with a merger or consolidation with,
another corporation or other entity; or (iv) a registration of securities which
is solely a combination of any of the above.

     (b)  The Company shall not be obligated to give notice or include Shares in
any registration pursuant to Section 7.2(b) during the period starting with the
date thirty (30) days prior to the Company's estimated date of filing of, and
ending on a date six months following the effective date of, a registration
pertaining to an underwritten public offering of securities for the account of
the Company, provided that the Company is actively employing in good faith all
reasonable efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective and
that the Company's estimates of the date of filing of such registration
statement is made in good faith.

     (c)  If (i) there is material non-public information regarding the Company
which the Board of Directors of the Company determines in good faith, based upon
an informed judgement, not to be in the Company's best interest to disclose and
which the Company is not otherwise required to disclose, or (ii) there is a
significant business opportunity available to the Company which the Board
determines in good faith, based upon an informed judgement, not to be in the
Company's best interest to disclose and which the Company is not otherwise
required to disclose, or (iii) there is a significant business opportunity
available to the Company and the Board determines in good faith, based upon an
informed judgement, that the Company's ability to pursue such opportunity would
be materially and adversely affected by a registered public offering of the
Common Stock, then the Company may postpone filing a registration statement
requested pursuant to Section 7.2(b) for a period not to exceed 150 days,
provided that the Company may not postpone its obligation under this subpart
more than once every 12 months.

     (d)  If (i) BLP requests inclusion of any Shares in a registration
statement pursuant to Section 7.2(a) of this Agreement, (ii) the offering
proposed to be made is to be an underwritten public offering, and (iii) the
managing underwriters of such public offering furnish a written opinion that the
total amount of Common Stock to be included in such offering would exceed
<PAGE>

the maximum amount of Common Stock (as specified in such opinion) which can be
marketed at a price reasonably related to the then current market value of the
Common Stock and without materially and adversely affecting such offering, then
in such case the rights of BLP, of the holders of other securities having the
right to include such securities in such registration and of the Company to
participate in such offering shall be in the following order of priority: First:
the Company; and then Second: the holders (including BLP) shall be entitled to
participate in such offering, pro rata among themselves in accordance with the
number of shares of Common Stock which each such holder has requested be
registered.

     (e) In connection with any offering involving an underwriting of Shares
pursuant to Section 7.2(a) of this Agreement, the Company shall not be required
to include any of the Shares of BLP in such offering unless BLP agrees to the
terms of the underwriting agreed to between the Company and the underwriter or
underwriters selected by the Company, provided that no such agreement shall add
to the indemnities or affect the priorities set forth in this Agreement.

     (f)  The Company may, in its sole discretion, without the consent of BLP
and without liability to BLP for such action, withdraw a Registration Statement
at any time described in Section 7.2(a).

     7.4  Blue Sky.  The Company will exercise its best efforts to Register and
          --------                                                            
qualify the Shares included in the Registration Statement under such other
securities or Blue Sky laws of such jurisdictions as shall be reasonably
requested by BLP for the distribution of such securities; provided, however,
that the Company shall not be required to qualify to do business, to file a
general consent to service of process, or to subject itself to taxation in any
state or jurisdiction in which it is not now so qualified or taxed.

     7.5  Expenses of Registration.  All Registration Expenses incurred in
          ------------------------                                       
connection with the Registration Statement pursuant to Section 7.2 shall be
borne by the Company.  All Selling Expenses shall be borne by BLP.  Fees and
expenses of counsel engaged by BLP for purposes of any Registration shall be
borne by BLP.

     7.5  Registration Procedures.
          -----------------------

     (a) Advice By the Company.  The Company will keep BLP advised as to the
         ---------------------                                             
initiation and completion of any Registration Statement.  At its expense the
Company will (i) furnish such number of prospectuses (including preliminary
prospectuses) and other documents as BLP from time to time may reasonably
request; and (ii) furnish to BLP, upon the effectiveness of the Registration
Statement and upon each change in facts set forth in such memorandum, a
memorandum of counsel advising as to the status of its registration and
qualification of its Shares under the securities or Blue Sky laws of those
jurisdictions reasonably requested by BLP pursuant to this Section 7.  In
addition, the obligation of the Company to maintain the effectiveness of any
Registration Statement shall be suspended with respect to any Shares held by BLP
at any time following the sale of such Shares pursuant to Rule 144(k) or through
the Registration Statement.

     (b) Amendments.  The Company will promptly prepare and file with the SEC
         ----------                                                         
such amendments and prospectus supplements, including post-effective amendments,
to the
<PAGE>

Registration Statement as the Company determines may be necessary or
appropriate, and use its best efforts to have such post-effective amendments
declared effective as promptly as practicable; cause the related prospectus to
be supplemented by any prospectus supplement, and as so supplemented, to be
filed with the SEC; and notify BLP promptly when a prospectus, any prospectus
supplement or post-effective amendment must be filed (because the Registration
Statement has become inaccurate or otherwise) or has been filed and, with
respect to any post-effective amendment, when the same has become effective.

     7.6  Information Furnished by BLP.  It shall be a condition precedent to
          ----------------------------                                      
the Company's obligations to register the Shares under this Agreement that BLP
furnish to the Company in writing such information regarding BLP and the
distribution proposed by BLP as the Company may reasonably request.

     7.7  Indemnification.
          ---------------

     (a) The Company's Indemnification.  The Company will indemnify BLP and its
         -----------------------------                                        
officers and directors, and each person controlling BLP, with respect to which
Registration, qualification or compliance has been effected pursuant to this
Agreement, against all claims, losses, damages or liabilities (or actions in
respect thereof) to the extent such claims, losses, damages or liabilities arise
out of or are based upon any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a
material fact contained in any prospectus or any related Registration Statement
incident to any such Registration, qualification or compliance, or any omission
(or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated
therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, or any
violation by the Company of any rule or regulation promulgated under the 1933
Act applicable to the Company and relating to action or inaction required of the
Company in connection with any such Registration; and the Company will reimburse
BLP, and each person who controls BLP, for any legal and any other expenses
reasonably incurred in connection with investigating or defending any such
claim, loss, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that the indemnity
contained in this Section shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any
such claim, loss, damage, liability or action if settlement is effected without
the consent of the Company (which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld and
may not be withheld unless the Company has acknowledged in writing BLP's right
to indemnity under such claim); and provided, further, that the Company will not
be liable in any such case to the extent that any such claim, loss, damage,
liability or expense arises out of or is based upon any untrue statement or
omission based upon written information furnished to the Company by BLP, or
controlling person and stated in writing to be for use in connection with the
offering of securities of the Company.  Notwithstanding the above, the foregoing
indemnity is subject to the condition that, insofar as it relates to any such
untrue statement, alleged untrue statement, omission or alleged omission made in
a preliminary prospectus on file with the SEC at the time the Registration
Statement becomes effective or a prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule
424(b) (the "Final Prospectus"), such indemnity agreement shall not inure to the
benefit of BLP, if (i) a copy of the Final Prospectus was not furnished to the
person asserting the loss, liability, claim or damage at or prior to the time
such action is required by the 1933 Act, (ii) the Final Prospectus corrected the
untrue statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or omission, and (iii)
BLP or an agent of BLP had an affirmative obligation under applicable laws,
rules or regulations to deliver the Final Prospectus to the person asserting the
loss, liability, claim or damage.
<PAGE>

     (b) BLP's Indemnification.  BLP will indemnify the Company, each of its
         ---------------------                                             
directors and officers, each person who controls the Company within the meaning
of the 1933 Act, against all claims, losses, damages and liabilities (or actions
in respect thereof) arising out of or based upon (i) any untrue statement (or
alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in such Registration
Statement or related prospectus, or any omission (or alleged omission) to state
therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the
statements therein not misleading, or (ii) the failure by BLP to deliver a Final
Prospectus to any person as required by any rule or regulation promulgated under
the 1933 Act, and will reimburse the Company, such directors, officers, or
control persons for any legal and any other expenses reasonably incurred in
connection with investigating or defending any such claim, loss, damage,
liability or action, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that
such untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) or omission (or alleged
omission) is made in the Registration Statement or prospectus in reliance upon
and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by BLP and
stated to be specifically for use in connection with the offering of the
Company; provided, however, that BLP's liability under this Section shall not
         --------                                                           
exceed BLP's proceeds from the offering of its Shares made in connection with
such Registration.

     (c) Indemnification Procedure.  Promptly after receipt by an indemnified
         -------------------------                                          
party under this Section 7 of notice of the commencement of any action, such
indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against an
indemnifying party under this Section 7, notify the indemnifying party in
writing of the commencement thereof and generally summarize such action.  The
indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in and to assume the
defense of such claim, and shall be entitled to select counsel for the defense
of such claim with the approval of the party entitled to indemnification, which
approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the
party entitled to indemnification shall have the right to employ separate
counsel (reasonably satisfactory to the indemnifying party) to participate in
the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be the
expense of such indemnified party unless the named parties to such action or
proceedings include both the indemnifying party and the indemnified party and
the indemnifying party or the indemnified party shall have been advised by
counsel that there are one or more legal defenses available to it which are
different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party (in
which case, if the indemnified party notifies the indemnifying party in writing
that it elects to employ separate counsel at the reasonable expense of the
indemnifying party, the indemnifying party shall not have the right to assume
the defense of such action or proceeding on behalf of the indemnified party).

     (d) Contribution.  If the indemnification provided for in this Section 7.7
         ------------                                                         
from an indemnifying party is unavailable to an indemnified party hereunder in
respect to any losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses referred to
herein, then the indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying such indemnified
party, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party
as a result of such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses in such
proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying
party and indemnified party in connection with the statements or omissions which
result in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, as well as any
other relevant equitable considerations.  The relative fault of such
indemnifying party and indemnified party shall be determined by reference to,
among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material
fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to
information supplied by such
<PAGE>

indemnifying party or indemnified party and the parties' relative intent,
knowledge, access to information supplied by such indemnifying party or
indemnified party and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or
omission.  The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of the losses,
claims, damages, liabilities and expenses referred to above shall be deemed to
include any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in
connection with investigating or defending any action, suit, proceeding or
claim.

     7.8  No-Action Letter or Opinion of Counsel in Lieu of Registration.
          --------------------------------------------------------------  
Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, if the Company shall have
obtained from the SEC a "no-action" letter in which the SEC has indicated that
it will take no action if, without Registration under the 1933 Act, BLP disposes
of Shares covered by any request for Registration made under this Section 7 in
the specific manner in BLP proposes to dispose of the Shares included in such
request (such as including, without limitation, inclusion of such Shares in an
underwriting initiated by the Company), or if in the opinion of counsel for the
Company concurred in by counsel for BLP, which concurrence shall not be
unreasonably withheld, no Registration under the 1933 Act is required in
connection with such disposition, due to the applicability of Rule 144(k) as
promulgated under the 1933 Act (or any successor provision), the Shares included
in such request shall not be eligible for Registration under this Agreement;
provided, however, that any Shares not so disposed of shall be eligible for
Registration in accordance with the terms of this Agreement with respect to
other proposed dispositions to which this Section 7.8 does not apply.  In
addition, the obligation of the Company to file or maintain the effectiveness of
any Registration Statement shall be suspended with respect to any Shares held by
BLP following such time.
