NEW YORK, March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of ISTA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("ISTA" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: ISTA) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Bausch + Lomb. Under the terms of the agreement, ISTA shareholders will receive $9.10 for each share of ISTA stock they own. The transaction has a total approximate value of $500 million.
