Many May be Unaware of Eye Solution Recall

Despite a worldwide recall, thousands of contact lens wearers continue to use an eye solution possibly linked to serious eye infections.

In May, a worldwide recall of "Complete Moisture Plus" lens cleaner was issued.

The recall stemmed from the products' apparent inability to protect users from an infectious microbe causing 25% of the users to require corneal transplants.

A recent survey by the centers for disease control found more than half of contact lens users were unaware the product had been recalled 3 months earlier.
