Wearing contact lenses can be safe when you take the right precautions, but sometimes, no matter how careful you are, you could still be at risk of sustaining a terrible eye infection!

Earlier last week, an Australian netizen named Lauren took to Facebook to warn others about using the highly popular contact lens solution brand, RE-NU.

In her post, she said that her mother was unfortunately rendered temporarily disabled from using this contact lens solution. An excerpt from her post reads,

“My mother has been wearing contact lenses for 17 years, and using the same contact lens solution for as long as she can remember… possibly since her first set of contacts arrived.”

“Three weeks ago she purchased a batch of this solution in a three-pack of 355ml bottles. The expiry is November 2018 and the batch number is: AU355X3-67L238.”

Her mother used the solution on Sunday (30th July) and according to the directions advised. However, the next day, she was hospitalised and diagnosed with Keratitis.

Keratitis, according to Mayo Clinic, is an inflammation of the cornea that is sometimes caused by a bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic infection. Lauren’s post reads,

“She is in extreme pain, cannot open her eyes, and is terrified and upset. She is on high doses of pain killers, constantly needing eye drops to flush her eyes and she is taking antibiotics for the infection caused by the lens solution.”

“The worst part of this is that the manufacturer (Bausch + Lomb) has recalled their lens products in the past due to causing dangerous numbers of Keratitis. The evidence is all over the internet, all you have to do is Google it.”

According to Lauren’s post, the product and batch number is now being investigated by Bausch + Lomb.

Now, Lauren’s mother is at home resting in bed and can’t open her eyes because of the pain. When she can open them, all she can see are blurry lights, but no objects. She is still relying on pain killers to control the unbearable pain in her eyes and cannot carry out daily tasks like cooking and even showering. 

“She can’t read or respond to emails and texts, she can’t watch TV or drive her car. Her freedom has been completely compromised due to the manufacturer’s lack of quality control, and adherence to the Australian consumer safety standards.

At the end of her post, Lauren advised everyone not to use this contact lens solution without checking the batch number first (once again, it’s AU355X3-67L238), so that they won’t suffer the same fate as her mother.

What a scary thing to happen! We hope Lauren’s mother will recover soon. Although this happened in Australia and it’s unlikely that Malaysian batches are affected, it’s best to check the batch number of your contact lens solution if you use this brand just to be on the safe side!
