Bausch + Lomb is conducting a voluntary recall, proposed Class II, of PeroxiClear® 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting solution in the U.S. and Canada from retailers, wholesalers, and eye care professionals. PeroxiClear is a specialty contact lens solution with a special lens case and neutralizing disc and is indicated for soft and rigid gas permeable contact lenses.
The company chose to initiate this voluntary action based on internal testing that simulated normal product use. Over the course of the recommended 5 uses of the lens case, testing showed occasional occurrences where the residual peroxide remaining in the lens case after neutralization was above product specification.
Although the product impacted by this voluntary recall represents low risk to the consumer/patient and is unlikely to cause serious health consequences, the company is voluntarily recalling the product out of an abundance of caution. If the residual hydrogen peroxide is above product specification the user of the product could experience symptoms of burning/stinging, irritation, red eye and in rare circumstances other more serious health consequences. No other Bausch + Lomb products are affected by this voluntary recall.
The decision to conduct this voluntary recall is part of our ongoing commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. We are continuing our evaluation for PeroxiClear, and it is unlikely that we will be able to return the product to the marketplace within 12 months.
