Blurred Vision for Bausch & Lomb

  • Supplementary Resources


On March 3, 2006, Bausch & Lomb received a phone call from New Jersey ophthalmologist Dr. David S. Chu regarding three patients afflicted with a serious fungal condition known as fusarium keratitus. These patients all were contact-lens wearers, and had used Bausch & Lomb’s ReNu with MoistureLoc lens solution. This telephone call started a chain of events, accusations, and CDC investigations that eventually led to a recall by Bausch & Lomb in the U.S. and overseas, but not before the crisis had threatened to damage not only sales of its popular lens solution, but also Bausch & Lomb’s reputation.
