Motion Seeks to Have Court Consider New Renu with MoistureLoc EvidenceNew evidence shows that Renu with MoistureLoc Contact Lens Solution when heated in plastic containers loses antimicrobial qualities and can lead to varying forms of bacterial infections.

The national law firm of Parker Waichman LLP, in light of this evidence, has re-filed a motion in Supreme Court of the State of New York to include victims of bacterial infections caused by this popular contact lens solution. The court has previously dismissed cases from victims who suffered potentially blinding bacterial infections other than Keratitis caused by Renu with MoistureLoc Contact Lens Solution.

At the time those cases were dismissed, the Court said the Plaintiffs had not presented any clinical or peer-reviewed evidence to show that Renu with MoistureLoc Contact Lens Solution when heated lost the antimicrobial qualities that caused any other infections than Keratitis, caused by the Fusarium fungus. Now, new evidence shows that heated Renu with MoistureLoc Contact Lens Solution does, in fact, lose those qualities and can lead to other bacterial eye infections.

In 2006, Bausch & Lomb issued a recall on Renu with MoistureLoc Contact Lens Solution after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified at least 164 confirmed cases of Fusarium keratitis most likely caused by the contact lens solution in question. Parker Waichman was also representing victims of other bacterial infections who also used Renu with MoistureLoc solution.

The firm believes that new evidence published in the journal Eye & Contact Lens shows that Renu with MoistureLoc Contact Lens Solution loses significant antimicrobial qualities with all fungi, all gram-positive bacteria, and all isolates of Klebsiella, according to a press release from Parker Waichman, when the disinfectant used in the solution was incubated at 56-degrees (Celcius). The study found that heating the contact lens solution in question caused a loss of antimicrobial qualities not specific to Fusarium infections that cause keratitis.

“It is the contention of Parker Waichman LLP that the new study conclusively supports the view that Renu with MoistureLoc as packaged and marketed in high-density polyethylene plastic container loses its ability to kill bacteria and other microorganisms when subject to high temperatures, and that these factors lead to the failure of the product, and resulted in injuries to consumers,” the firm states in its release. The firm has re-filed a motion to trump the exclusion of Plaintiffs from the MoistureLoc Products Liability Litigation who suffered non-Fusarium infections they believed to be caused by the contact lens solution.

Parker Waichman believes the study published in the journal supports its theory that Renu with MoistureLoc was likely to cause bacterial infections other than Fusarium and that other victims of this defective product are due their day in court.

I had a friend who recommended Parker Waichman and I have to say I am so thankful that he suggested them. I found them to be very professional. Whenever I had an issue, I always spoke to Tina Morace. She was always prompt in returning my calls, and never to busy to answer any of my questions. She played an integral part in making the whole process stress free for me. Tina and the firm never kept me in the dark on what was going on. I will definitely use them again, and I highly recommend them.
