ReNu® with MoistureLoc® Eye Solution: The Recall
Bausch & Lomb recently halted sales in the United States of ReNu® with MoistureLoc®, an eye solution used by many contact lens wearers. The ReNu® recall was issued because the product has been linked to severe eye infections throughout Asia and the United States.
Due to the outbreak of Fusarium keratitis – the fungus causing the infections, the Food and Drug Administration will inspect the Bausch & Lomb plant in Greenville, South Carolina, the sole producer of the Bausch & Lomb ReNu® eye solution .
U.S. Health Officials have yet to find a direct link between ReNu® Eye Solution with MoistureLoc® and the infections. However, many of the infected patients had used the brand.
The fungus Fusarium keratitis can cause serious eye infections and possibly permanent loss of sight. The outbreak was first discovered in Asia where several contact wearers reported the infection. Currently, officials are investigating over 100 cases of Fusarium keratitis in the United States and a possible link between the fungus and ReNu® with MoistureLoc® Eye Solution. Infections can be severe, so it is imperative that you have the attorneys at our Phoenix, Arizona firm evaluate your claim.
Fusarium keratitis is an infection that can be cured through prolonged drug therapy; however, if the medications do not have an affect, surgery may be necessary to remove fungal eye ulcers or lesions.
If you have previously used ReNu® with MoistureLoc® Eye Solution, there are several symptoms of Fusarium keratitis that you should be aware of, including:
- Eye pain
- Eye discomfort
- Red eye
- Watery discharge
- Decreased vision
- Sensitivity to light
