Last time it was the CoperVision Avaira lense, this time it’s the Avaira Aquaform Comfort Science enfilcon lenses. The Avaira Aquaform, a daily wear sphere soft contact lens, is being recalled as there is the unintended presence of a silicone oil residue on the lenses. Symptoms may range from hazy, blurry vision, discomfort to eye injuries requiring medical treatment.
These lenses were manufactured from February 1, 2011 through August 24, 2011 and distributed from March 2, 2011 through November 15, 2011.
Affected contact lens wearers should stop wearing their lenses immediately and contact their eye care practitioner for advice. Avaira Sphere contact lens wearers should check CooperVision’s recall web site and enter the package lot number to determine whether their lenses have been recalled, or contact the toll-free consumer hotline at 1-855-526-6737.
