  • product
  • The product was voluntarily recalled on May 25 at the request of the Food & Drug Administration in the wake of data collected and reviewed by the Centers for Disease Control linking the solution to a serious corneal infection known as Acanthamoeba keratitis. (schmidtandclark.com)
  • The product will reportedly feature revised labeling designed to improve safety, and will instruct users to manually rub their lenses during the cleaning process. (schmidtandclark.com)
  • step
  • AMO had previously represented to consumers that they could effectively disinfect lenses without a rub step, a practice considered unsafe by many optometrists and ophthalmologists. (schmidtandclark.com)
  • 1976
  • AMO, (originally Heyer-Schulte Medical Optics, renamed American Medical Optics after purchase by American Hospital Supply Corporation - AHSC) started business in 1976 in the early development of intraocular lenses for cataract patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • Barnes-Hind, the largest U.S. marketer of hard contact lens solutions, was bought in 1976 and strengthened Revlon's share of the eye-care market. (wikipedia.org)
  • preservative
  • The incompatibility of contact lenses with solutions could potentially lead to a toxic reaction that is commonly caused by the preservative in the solution. (opto.ca)
  • Preservatives used in the initial chemical care systems often caused ocular irritation and red eyes, because of the degradation of the preservative thimerosal, as well as the uptake and release of the small molecular weight preservative Chlorhexidine from the lens. (clspectrum.com)
  • The solution is disinfecting and preservative and has a broad spectrum of bactericidal and fungicidal activity at low concentrations coupled with very low toxicity when used with soft-type contact lenses. (wikipedia.org)
  • alcohols
  • Some examples of miscible solutions include water and organic compounds such as alcohols, aldehydes and ketones. (reference.com)
  • The 50% solution is purely aqueous, while more concentrated solutions require incorporation of rheology modifiers (alcohols, polyethylene glycols, etc.) to prevent increases in viscosity or gel formation under low temperature conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cases
  • This article looks at how the regulations and clinical controls established by the Food and Drug Administration over the past three decades have changed and evolved to improve the safety and efficacy of contact lenses, solutions and lens cases. (clspectrum.com)
  • Patients failed to clean their cases and frequently topped off the solution remaining in the case from the previous night. (clspectrum.com)
  • However, there have been documented cases of allergic reactions to PVP/povidone, particularly regarding subcutaneous (applied under the skin) use and situations where the PVP has come in contact with autologous serum (internal blood fluids) and mucous membranes. (wikipedia.org)
  • The results of this study found that 24% of "contact lens cases were colonized by fungi" with a "majority growing Cladosporium species (10/24) or Candida species (9/24). (wikipedia.org)
  • Due to the findings of this study, it is suggested that regular replacement of contact lens cases is essential. (wikipedia.org)
  • Products
  • Using this solution without the neutralizer can cause burning and intense eye pain, so these products should only be used as directed. (reference.com)
  • This complex is used in various products like solutions, ointment, pessaries, liquid soaps and surgical scrubs. (wikipedia.org)
  • A woman, who had previously experienced urticaria (hives) from various hair products, later found to contain PVP, had an anaphylactic response after povidone-iodine solution was applied internally. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lens care products for soft contact lenses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Products in the ophthalmic surgical line include intraocular lenses, laser vision correction systems, phacoemulsification systems, viscoelastics, microkeratomes and related products used in cataract and refractive surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vision Direct Group Ltd is an online optical retailer that sells contact lenses, solutions and eye care products. (wikipedia.org)
  • Spectrum
  • An article I published in Contact Lens Spectrum in 1999 began with a discussion on the principal objective of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which is to provide a reasonable assurance of the safety and efficacy of drugs and devices before and after they're either approved or cleared for public distribution. (clspectrum.com)
  • fluorescein
  • The Confederation negotiated a solution to the difficulties posed by the use of fluorescein impregnated paper strips when Bausch & Lomb discontinued the production of Fluorets. (wikipedia.org)
  • The color of its aqueous solution varies from green to orange as a function of the way it is observed: by reflection or by transmission, as can be noticed in bubble levels, for example, in which fluorescein is added as a colorant to the alcohol filling the tube in order to increase the visibility of the air bubble contained within (thus enhancing the precision of the instrument). (wikipedia.org)
  • More concentrated solutions of fluorescein can even appear red. (wikipedia.org)
  • Fluorescein dye solutions, typically 15% active, are commonly used as an aid to leak detection during hydrostatic testing of subsea oil and gas pipelines and other subsea infrastructure. (wikipedia.org)
  • wavelength
  • Previously, IR-NSOM was realized by applying a solid immersion lens with a refractive index of n, which shortens wavelength (λ) to (λ/n), compared to FTIR-based IR microscopy. (wikipedia.org)
  • made
  • You must contact Allianz Global Assistance in the event of an illness or accident which may lead to in-patient treatment or before any arrangements are made for repatriation. (docplayer.net)
