Anapol Schwartz represents many adults and children who have used ReNu MoistureLoc and have suffered a severe eye injury following the onset of Fusarium Keratitis a dangerous fungal eye disease. The product has been pulled off of the market.
In May of 2006, Bausch & Lomb permanently removed its ReNu contact lens solution with MoistureLoc from the market. The contact lens solution was being sold worldwide. Bausch & Lomb concluded that the product's formula or manufacturing related issues may have increased the risk of fungal eye infections in users of the ReNu under certain circumstances. The fungal infections appear most likely to related back to the design of the contact lens solution and not from a manufacturing problem. Either way, the Greenville manufactured lens product has been pulled.
Bausch & Lomb actually acted slower than many resellers of the product. The Bausch & Lomb request came AFTER several U.S. retailers led by Wal-Mart., Walgreen, and CVS Corp., pulled the ReNu with MoistureLoc solution off their shelves on their own.
Back in April, Bausch & Lomb said that neither the company nor any of the five federal inspectors had found any evidence that contact lens solution made at its Greenville plant is connected to eye fungus infections after nearly three weeks of testing. In retrospect, one has to wonder if this was an accurate statement?
