Potential Health Risks
The contaminants found in the recalled eye drops may cause a range of adverse health effects, including infection, vision loss, death or other eye-related complications. It is crucial to seek medical attention if you have experienced any unusual symptoms after using these eye drops, as some conditions may worsen over time if left untreated.
According to the CDC and numerous media reports, at least 68 patients who used various artificial tear and eyedrop products in at least 16 states were reportedly injured as a result of an outbreak of the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosahas.
