Johnson & Johnson Acuvue Contact Lenses Recall

by ACLens Bob on August 25, 2010

Johnson & Johnson has recalled contact lenses in Japan and other Asian and European markets due to a manufacturing problem.

J&J’s Vision Care Inc. unit recalled the “1-Day Acuvue TruEye” lenses after customers in Japan complained about experiencing pain, stinging or redness after inserting the lenses, the company said. Two lens customers were treated with medication, a spokesman said.

I live in US, and received a-year supply of 1-day Acuvue TruEye from a doctor’s office.
I also experience sting, pain and reddness after inserting new lenses.
After linsing the lenses with multipurpose solution, it still sting, so I always have to soak lenses for 20 minutes or so with multipurpose solution before inserting. I had been using soft contact lenses for 15 years, and had never had such a problem. Are my eyes getting more sensitive? I suspect the solution in the lenses are too harsh. Am I the only one who complain this with TruEye sold in US?

If you’re feeling pain, stinging, and redness with your contact lenses, discontinue use and see your eye doctor as soon as possible.

We haven’t received the same complaints with TruEye in the US because it’s a different lens type compared to the UK and Asia.
