AMO sued over contact lens solution

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Californian Maria Ruiz alleges in a complaint Dec. 22 that Advanced Medical Optics falsely advertised Complete Easy Rub Multi-Purpose Solutionfor contact lens care as a "new" formulation with "enhanced protection" against Acanthamoeba keratitis infections. The complaint, filed in California State Superior Court in Orange County, alleges the Easy Rub formula launched in 2007 is identical to an old formula AMO used in a private-label product, law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, counsel for the plaintiff, says in a release. The Easy Rub marketing provides "a false sense of security" since the solution's disinfectant ingredient "is not effective against Acanthamoeba organisms," the law firm adds. Santa Ana, Calif.-based AMO recalled a "no rub" solution in May 2007 after users experienced Acanthamoeba-related eye infections (1"The Tan Sheet" June 23, 2008, p. 12)
