Product Recall of Contact-Lens Solution

The manufacturer AMO has just voluntarily withdrawn its product Complete Moisture Plus Multi-Purpose Solution after federal health officials linked it to a rare but potentially binding eye infection, Acanthamoeba keratitis.

The CDC is advising customers who are using this contact-lens solution to immediately stop and to throw out their current contact lenses and the lens storage case because they may harbor the infection-causing amoeba.

It's rare, so no need to panic. But call an eye doctor if you've experienced eye pain or redness, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, the feeling of something in the eye or excessive tearing.
