ReNu Lawsuits

In April 2006, the Centers for Disease Control, and the FDA confirmed reports of Fusarium keratitis outbreaks. They immediately began to research the cause of these outbreaks and linked them to Bausch & Lomb’s ReNu with MoistureLoc contact lens solution.

Fusarium keratitis has led to such side effects as eye pain, infection and scarring, blurry vision, glaucoma and, in some cases, blindness.

Since the ReNu recall in May 2006, many consumers who were affected by their use of the ReNu solution have sought legal counsel. Lawsuits have been filed alleging deceptive marketing practices by Bausch & Lomb and failure to disclose an inherent defect in the company’s products.

  • In New York, legal action has been initiated seeking compensation for people who purchased ReNu from September 2004 to April 11, 2006. Among the serious allegations made in the lawsuit are claims that Bausch & Lomb knew there was a problem with its ReNu with MoistureLoc solution as early as February 2006, when there was a reported outbreak in Asia.
  • In Florida, a case was filed on behalf of a woman who was treated for the painful eye infection after using ReNu with MoistureLoc. In this case, the patient experienced permanent scarring to her cornea and is seeking compensation for her condition.
  • In Texas, the family of a 13-year-old boy filed a ReNu lawsuit, contending that he suffered severe damage to his eyes after using the product. The family made four visits to opthalmologists before Bausch & Lomb informed American consumers about the dangers of ReNu with MoistureLoc.

The information on this page pertains only to ReNu with MoistureLoc and not all ReNu products.
