A widely-sold brand of contact lenses could have become contaminated with rogue particles which could cause abrasions on the wearer’s eyeball.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority (MHRA) say the contact lens or the lenses’ blister solution could have come into contact with particles which scratch the eyes.
There is a danger of “eye redness or discomfort or corneal abrasion”.
A statement from MHRA says: “The affected lots may have particles on the contact lens or in the contact lens blister solution.
“If the particles are not noticed before insertion into the eye, this could cause eye redness or discomfort or corneal abrasion (damage to the surface of the eye).”
