In re ReNu With MoistureLoc Contact Lens Solution Products Liability Litigation

Lieff Cabraser served on the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee in federal court litigation arising out of Bausch & Lomb’s 2006 recall of its ReNu with MoistureLoc contact lens solution. Consumers who developed Fusarium keratitis, a rare and dangerous fungal eye infection, as well as other serious eye infections, alleged the lens solution was defective.

Some consumers were forced to undergo painful corneal transplant surgery to save their vision; others lost all or part of their vision permanently. The litigation was resolved under favorable, confidential settlements with Bausch & Lomb.
