The brand made headlines in 2006 when a report from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggested an increased incidence of fungal keratitis in people using Bausch & Lomb products. Bausch & Lomb subsequently suspended, then recalled shipments of one particular product, ReNu with MoistureLoc. Other ReNu formulations were unaffected, as they do not include the special ingredient in MoistureLoc, which was supposed to keep lenses moist but unfortunately also allowed microbes to survive the disinfection process.
To clean, disinfect and remove protein daily, follow these three easy steps:
- Place 3 drops of renu fresh multi-purpose solution on each side of the lens surface and gently rub for 20 seconds.
- Thoroughly rinse each side of the lens for 5 seconds with renu fresh multi-purpose solution.
- Place cleaned contact lens in the lens case and fill with fresh renu fresh multi-purpose solution. Soak at least 4 hours. Remember to always use fresh solution—never reuse solution.
STORAGE: You may store your lenses in the unopened lens case until ready to wear, up to a maximum of 30 days.
Be sure to use before expiration date marked on the carton and bottle and discard remaining solution within 90 days after opening.
Always follow your eye care professional’s instructions. Based upon your individual tear chemistry and lens-wearing schedule, your eye care professional may recommend additional products or procedures.
