CooperVision Avaira Toric and Sphere Soft Contact Lenses Recall Lawsuit

Bookmark and Share 

Avaira Contact Lenses Injury Lawyer

On October 14, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Class 1 recall of CooperVision’s AVAIRA Toric Soft Contact Lenses due to an unintended presence of silicone oil residue, which can cause hazy or blurry vision, discomfort to the eye and injuries requiring medical treatment.

Class I recalls are the most serious type of recall and involve situations in which there is a reasonable probability that use of these products will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.

The lenses, which are indicated for single-use disposable wear and daily wear, are used for the correction of nearsightedness or farsightedness with astigmatism in persons who may or may not have had their natural lens of their eye removed and who has not had previous eye diseases with a lens powers from -20.00 to +20.00 diopters and astigmatic corrections from -0.25 to -10.00 diopters. 

CooperVision first notified distributors of the recall on August 19, 2011, however, the FDA posted the recent recall notice after reporting that a larger effort was needed to alert consumers to the defective product.

CooperVision Expands Recall To Include Replacement Of Avaira Sphere Lenses

On November 15, 2011 CooperVision expanded its recall on limited lots of Avaira Toric contact lenses to include limited lots of Avaira Sphere contact lenses.

CooperVision noted that it is expanding the recall because it identified certain lots of Avaira Sphere lenses that did not meet its updated quality requirements due to the level of a silicone oil residue.

CooperVision stated that it intends to replace the recalled product with available Avaira Sphere inventory.

Consumers can visit CooperVison’s website at www.coopervision.com/recall and enter the lot number of their package to determine whether their lenses are part of the recall. The affected lenses were manufactured from November 1, 2010 through August 3, 2011.  Approximately 778,301 lenses were distributed.

Ennis & Ennis, P.A. recommends consumers who have the affected lenses, but have not suffered the symptoms, should return their lenses to their eye care practitioner or point of purchase. 

Furthermore, consumers who have been affected by the recall and have suffered symptoms should immediately stop wearing the lenses and immediately contact their eye care practitioner for advice.  Then they should file an adverse event report with the FDA.  Lastly, they should consult with an experienced attorney.
