Contact Lens Recall

Do you wear CooperVision Avaira brand contact lenses?  If so, you can go here and enter the lot numbers from your boxes to see if you are affected.  

The company is claiming that a small # of patients wearing the Avaira Toric or Avaira Sphere brand contact lenses will be affected.  

According to CooperVision, the Avaira toric and sphere are the company's only contact lenses manufactured using silicone oil, and residue contamination of some lenses has caused temporary adverse changes in vision, in some cases leading to severe eye pain or eye injuries requiring medical treatment.   

I personally rarely fit this lens, but it has gained some marketshare recently.  If you are wearing this lens or know someone that is, please look into this issue and contact your eyecare provider if you fall into the affected lot numbers.

For further information, you can contact CooperVision directly.
