Side Effects from Renu MoistureLoc Lens Solution


Eye Injury and Eye Infection

There are a number of potential side effects caused by the use of ReNu MoistureLoc Lens Solution. On April 10, 2006, Bausch & Lomb halted all ReNu MoistureLoc shipments to stores, and a month later on May 15, 2006, the company recalled all ReNu MoistureLoc products in stores because the contact lens solution was linked to a dangerous Fusarium keratitis infection. Fungal Keratitis is a very serious infection that can destroy the cornea, the transparent sheet that covers the iris (colored part), pupil (the dark middle part), and anterior chamber of the eye. The cornea is responsible for a great deal of the visual power of the eye.

Fungal Keratitis can result in a number of serious complications, including:

  • Eye injury and eye infection
  • Blindness
  • Light sensitivity
  • Redness in the eye
  • Pus discharge from the eye
  • Eye Pain
  • Severe ocular discomfort
  • Corneal scarring

Fusarium Keratitis & Fungal Keratitis

Fusarium keratitis is usually characterized by severe corneal inflammation that can occur from contaminated contact lenses. Even though most modern contact lenses attempt to reduce the occurrence of severe fungal infections, the use of contaminated solutions such as MoistureLoc has been known to increase the number of cases of conditions such as fungal keratitis.
