Denver, CO, June 16, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- As the recall and investigation into Advanced Medical Optics Moisture Plus contact solution continues, LegalView.com, your comprehensive portal on the Web for all things legal, continues to closely watch the developing situation through its Moisture Plus Recall
information portal. Moisture Plus was recalled earlier this year after a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) connected it with an outbreak of serious and potentially blinding eye infection known as Acanthamoeba keratitis. As the solution's maker, Advanced Medical Optics, and health authorities investigate how Moisture Plus became contaminated, LegalView.com will keep its readers up to date with its free, comprehensive collection of original articles, news, government releases and more.
Acanthamoeba keratitis is an infection of the eye caused by exposure to tiny waterborne parasites. Its symptoms include redness, pain, excessive tears, discharge and blurry or double vision. If left untreated, the infection could scar or tear the cornea, causing total or partial blindness. While Acanthamoeba keratitis is normally very rare, the CDC received reports of a sharp upswing in cases of the infection as early as 2005. In the investigation that followed, the agency concluded that infected contact lens wearers were seven times more likely to have used AMO Moisture Plus than healthy lens wearers. In response, AMO voluntarily recalled the solution May 25th. Public health authorities continue to investigate, but have called on lens wearers to discard Moisture Plus and any lenses or contact lens containers the contact lens solution may have touched.
