Federman & Sherwood Announces That A Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Bausch & Lomb

OKLAHOMA CITY, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 17, 2006, a class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York against Bausch & Lomb on behalf of all users of a contact solution called ReNu with MoistureLoc, which has now been linked to a serious fungal infection by the CDC and FDA. Federman & Sherwood is ready to assist potential clients who consistently used this product for 30 days or longer, resulting in a serious corneal infection known as 'fusarium keratitis', an infection of the cornea.

Public health warnings have been issued because of serious infections occurring in contact lens wearers who also used this product. These warnings came after the CDC interviewed 26 patients suspected of 'fusarium keratitis', all of which were users of the ReNu with MoistureLoc Solution. On April 13, 2006, Bausch & Lomb, Inc. recommended that consumers switch to another contact lens solution, and asked all retailers to remove from their shelves any ReNu with MoistureLoc which was manufactured in the United States.

Plaintiffs in cases such as these typically seek to recover damages for medical screening and monitoring, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our attorneys will handle your inquiry quickly and responsibly. If you feel you have suffered a personal injury as a result of using ReNu with MoistureLoc by Bausch & Lomb, Inc., now is the time to assert your rights. For more information, contact:
