"Nearly 5 million more CooperVision contact lenses are being recalled because they may cause blurry vision, eye pain, and injuries requiring medical treatment.

"CooperVision Inc. says it will expand its recall of Avaira soft contacts to include 4.9 million Sphere lenses, which have already been shipped to customers around the world.

"The problem appears to be the level of silicone oil left on the lenses during the manufacturing process, according to a company news release." The first recall was in August, but was expanded due to the FDA. Please follow the link to learn more information, including contact information for CooperVision.

Have you ever had a problem with your contact lens that you thought might have been due to the manufacturer?
