The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an alert to health care professionals and their patients who wear soft contact lenses, about a voluntary recall of Complete MoisturePlus Multi Purpose Solution manufactured by Advanced Medical Optics of Santa Ana, Ca. The recall was initiated because of reports of a rare but serious eye infection (Acanthamoeba keratitis) caused by a parasite. The FDA is advising consumers who wear soft contact lenses to stop using Complete MoisturePlus solution, discard all partially-used or unopened bottles and replace their lenses and storage container.
