Law Firm in Commack: Rudolph F.X. Migliore, PC
Certain contact lenses were recently recalled due to the potential for eye injuries, including painful corneal lacerations. The Law Firm is now investigating lawsuits on behalf of those injured.

Recently there has been talk of corneal lacerations being connected to the use of certain contact lenses. Corneal lacerations are painful eye injuries that are usually caused by an object striking the eye with force. If the cornea is not penetrated, the injury is known as a corneal abrasion. However, with the more severe full thickness cornea lacerations, the cornea is fully penetrated and the individual experiences extreme pain and discomfort. Many sufferers have described the experience as some of the most intense pain they have ever had.

The reason these injuries have been in the news recently is because the manufacturers of the Avaria Toric contact lenses have issued a recall in conjunction with the Food and Drug Administration. The recall was issued because an “unintended oil residue” was present on certain lots of the contact lenses. This residue can lead to a number of symptoms ranging from hazy, blurry vision and discomfort, to eye injuries requiring medical treatment. There have been several reports of corneal lacerations, or tears, resulting from the use of these CooperVision Avaria Toric Contact Lenses. This foreign material on the lenses may fully penetrate the cornea and create a nightmare for the intended user. In all, there were approximately 778,301 lenses affected by the recall.
