Breaking News Regarding Acanthamoeba Keratitis & Complete® MoisturePlus™

What’s the Problem?

In the second nationwide recall, Advanced Medical Optics (AMO) in association with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is voluntarily recalling its popular its Complete® MoisturePlus™ Multi-Purpose Solution.

The CDC and the FDA are investigating 138 confirmed cases of Acanthamoeba Keratitis, a rare, painful eye infection that can lead to permanent vision loss or blindness.

“The CDC estimates a risk of at least seven times greater for those who used Complete Moisture Plus solution versus those who did not … Researchers have found the solution was used by almost 60% of people suffering from a rare outbreak of infections by a microbe known as Acanthamoeba.”

In addition to the most recent recall, our law firm is still accepting cases of Microbial Keratitis, another eye/corneal infection that was linked to AMO Complete® MoisturePlus™ contact solution in November 2006. The earlier recall was initiated because it was discovered that certain lots of the 12-ounce Complete® MoisturePlus™ Multi-Purpose contact lens care solution and Active Packs were contaminated with bacteria.

If you feel that you may have developed Microbial Keratitis or Acanthamoeba Keratitis you should seek professional medical attention immediately. If left untreated, these infections could lead to blindness, vision loss or other serious side effects.

What You Can Do & How We Can Help: If you or a loved one have developed a corneal infection (keratitis) while using any multi-purpose contact lens solution, you should contact us immediately. You may be entitled to compensation.

Talk to your doctor: Acanthamoeba Keratitis is often misdiagnosed, and/or confused with other forms of keratitis caused by bacteria, fungus or viruses such as herpes. If you have developed a corneal infection that has not responded well to treatment, you may want to ask your doctor to consider acanthamoeba.

What is Acanthamoeba Keratitis?

Acanthamoeba Keratitis primarily affects otherwise healthy people, most of whom wear contact lenses. In the United States, an estimated 85% of cases occur in contact lens users. Acanthamoeba Keratitis is a rare, local infection of the eye that typically occurs in healthy persons and can result in permanent visual impairment or blindness. Acanthamoeba Keratitis varies greatly from person to person.

Symptoms

The symptoms of Acanthamoeba Keratitis vary greatly from person to person. Generally, people that have been diagnosed with Acanthamoeba Keratitis exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Eye pain
  • Eye redness
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensation of something in the eye
  • Excessive tearing

Because there are similarities with symptoms of other eye infections, early diagnosis is essential for effective treatment of Acanthamoeba Keratitis.

What is Microbial Keratitis – Corneal Infection?

Microbial Keratitis, “MK” or corneal infection is a very rare but serious complication affecting around 5 in 10,000 contact lens wearers each year. Microbial Keratitis is a bacterial infection of the front surface of the eye (the cornea), which can lead to vision loss or blindness.

Microbial Keratitis or corneal infections are associated with pain, which usually develops rapidly, and severe redness.

Symptoms of Microbial Keratitis

The symptoms of Microbial Keratitis also vary greatly from person to person. Generally, people that have been diagnosed with Microbial Keratitis exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Tearing or discharge
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Puffiness of the lids
  • Decreased visual acuity

Because there are similarities with symptoms of other eye infections, early diagnosis by a qualified medical professional is essential for effective treatment of Microbial Keratitis.
