Our office has been informed that Bausch + Lomb is conducting a voluntary recall of PeroxiClear® 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting solution in the U.S. and Canada. Although this voluntary recall represents low risk to patients and is unlikely to cause serious health consequences, the company is voluntarily recalling the product from retailers, wholesalers, and eye care professionals. Bausch + Lomb 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 potentially causing temporary symptoms of burning/stinging, irritation, red eye and in rare circumstances other more serious health consequences.
For all patients who are using PeroxiClear, for more information on the voluntary product recall, Bausch + Lomb has recommended that you contact Stericycle, Inc., the firm conducting this product recall on behalf of Bausch + Lomb, at 1-877-877-0481. If you would like to report a product complaint, please contact the Bausch + Lomb Consumer Affairs team at 1-800-553-5340 or BLCustomerCare@bausch.com in the U.S. or 1-888-459-5000 in Canada.
Dr. Nate and Dr. Beth recommend that patients using PeroxiClear switch to Clear Care hydrogen peroxide solution. Read the package instructions carefully. As with PeroxiClear, do not put Clear Care directly in your eyes. You can find out more from https://www.clearcaresolution.com/ or call us at 813-792-0637.
