Recalled Eye Drops
By interviewing more than 50 individuals so far who fell ill after using bacteria-contaminated eye drops, safety groups have identified several brands of eye drops that could be unsafe to use.
Currently, these brands of eye drops have been recalled due to possible bacterial contamination*:
- EzriCare Artificial Tears
- Aru Pharma Lubricant Eye Drops
- Delsam Pharma Artificial Tears
- Purely Soothing 15% MSM Drops
- Others from Global Pharma Healthcare
- Other preservative-free eyedrops
- Clear Eyes eye drops
The recalled eye drops were sold in several states, including California, Florida, Texas, New York, Colorado, New Jersey, New Mexico, Connecticut, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Nevada. If you have an eye drop product that has been recalled, you should immediately discontinue its use, seal it, and secure it in a place that can’t be reached by children and pets.
(* We will attempt to update this list of affected and recalled eye drops as more unsafe brands are identified. This list was last updated in February 2023.)
Harm Caused by Contaminated Eye Drops
In most cases, the bacteria-contaminated eye drops have been linked to:
- Eye injuries
- Eye infections
- Temporary blindness
- Permanent vision damage
However, in one confirmed case so far, someone who used the eye drops suffered a bloodstream infection that became fatal. The bacteria linked to the eye drop products – Pseudomonas aeruginosa – is resistant to most antibiotics, so it can be extremely dangerous to people with weakened immune systems and pre-existing health conditions.
Compensation for Eye Drop Injury Claimants
Our eye drop recall attorneys of Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen are investigating the situation to see what types of compensation could be owed to injured consumers. The compensation could vary depending on how a case is handled, too. Individual lawsuits will have uniquely calculated damages based on that specific plaintiff’s losses. If enough people come forward with cases, though, a class action lawsuit could be formed, which creates a consolidated plaintiff class that splits any settlement or court awards.
You could be owed compensation that helps pay for:
- Past and future medical treatments
- Costs for specialized treatments and eye equipment
- Lost wages and future income
- Pain and suffering
We are focusing our efforts on eye drop injury cases from clients who desperately need legal help, such as people who have suffered permanent eye damage or the loss of a loved one due to bacteria-contaminated eye drops. In these cases, the losses are the most significant, and so, the compensation could be significant, too.
