Bausch + Lomb PeroxiClear Recall

Bausch + Lomb PeroxiClear Recall

We wanted to let our patients know that Bausch + Lomb is recalling their PeroxiClear cleaning and disinfecting solution in the United States and Canada. Below we’ve shared information from Bausch + Lomb regarding the recall and specific UPC codes. If you have questions about whether or not this recall will affect you, please feel free to our offices a call and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. 

From Bausch + Lomb:
Bausch + Lomb is conducting a voluntary recall proposed Class II, of PeroxiClear 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting solution in the United States and Canada. PeroxiClear is a specialty contact lens solution with a special lens case and neutralizing disc. PeroxiClear is indicated for soft and rigid gas permeable contact lenses.

Although this voluntary recall represents low risk to the consumer and is unlikely to cause serious health consequences, the company is voluntarily recalling the product from retailers, wholesalers, and eye care professionals out of an abundance of caution and as part of our ongoing commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. It is unlikely that we will be able to return the product to the marketplace within 12 months. The company chose to initiate this voluntary action based on internal testing that simulated normal product use. Testing showed occasional occurrences where the residual peroxide remaining in the lens case after neutralization was out of product specification.

PeroxiClear solution is unlikely to cause serious health consequences. If the residual hydrogen peroxide is above product specification the user of the product could experience temporary symptoms of burning/stinging, irritation, red eye and in rare circumstances other more serious health consequences.

This voluntary recall is limited to PeroxiClear only. No other Bausch + Lomb products are affected by this voluntary recall.
