Allergan has agreed to pay $13 million to settle a whistle-blower lawsuit brought by two Philadelphia-area ophthalmologists who alleged that the drugmaker engaged in a kickback scheme in order to get physicians to prescribe its eye-care medications.

Ophthalmologists Herbert Nevyas and Anita Nevyas-Wallace said that Allergan offered paid speaking engagements, free business consulting, and other services in order to stimulate sales of eye-care drugs Restasis and Acular.
