Lens Wearers Alerted Over Dangerous Fungal Infection

Following high incidence of a potentially dangerous infection associated with use of ReNu MoistureLoc lens solution, manufactured by Bausch & Lomb//, those in Hong Kong, US and Singapore have been alerted regarding the same and the controversial product has been withdrawn from sales.

Preliminary investigations have not revealed any contamination of the product. However the company has been unable to claim that the product is safe to use. All users have therefore been requested to stop using the product by the UK regulatory authority.

Alternatively users of this eye care product have been urged to discard any remaining solution in the bottle and get the empty bottle exchanged for some other lens care solution at the sales counter. This precautionary measure would prevent a majority of the rare fungal infection that can eventually lead to blindness, according to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority (MHRA).

‘After an extensive investigation involving thousands of tests, millions of dollars and collaboration with government agencies, health authorities and independent experts, there is no evidence of product contamination, tampering, counterfeiting or sterility failure. That leads us to conclude that some aspect of the MoistureLoc formula may be increasing the relative risk of Fusarium infection in unusual circumstances,’ said Ronald Zarrella, chief executive officer of Bausch & Lomb.

Fusarium infections can lead to inflammation of the front part of the eye, the cornea, characterized by symptoms of redness, blurred vision, swelling, pain, abnormal sensitivity to light and tearing.
