Eye Drops Injury & Puriton Product Recall Lawsuits
Product Liability Lawyer and Recall Attorney reviews Puriton Eye Drops Injury and pharmaceutical recalls for injured plaintiffs nationwide
Kadesh announced a recall for all lots of Puriton Eye Relief Drops after a recent FDA inspection observed that the ophthalmic drug, required to be sterile, was manufactured without necessary production controls and conditions to assure sterility. Contamination of eye drops can lead to serious Puriton eye drops injury and complications.
Puriton eye drops are an over-the-counter homeopathic medication used for the temporary relief of dry eyes or minor irritations of the eye. The product is distributed nationwide. The use of a non-sterile eye drop is potentially vision-threatening due to eye infection risks.
Consumers and businesses that have the product are recommended to stop using and selling the product. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting consumers about a voluntary recall of all lots of Puriton Eye Drops.
The FDA has noted that the pH of this product is relatively high and may cause damage to the tissues in the cornea, anterior chamber and deeper structures of the eye, which can lead to scarring, glaucoma or vision loss. Following any Puriton Eye Drops Injury, seek medical attention and contact a product liability lawyer to review the case.

Common Eye Injuries & Conditions
Common conditions and eye injury may include:
- Lasik Surgery Complications: Lasik Surgery Error can lead chronic eye discomfort and vision problems.
- Corneal laceration & Abrasion: Common causes of abrasions to the eye’s surface are getting poked in the eye or rubbing the eye vigorously. Scratches can make the eye susceptible to infection from bacteria or a fungus. Contaminated eye drops may cause severe complications.
- Foreign Object in Eye: foreign objects such as metal or other debris will require an emergency room visit. A doctor should remove foreign bodies as soon as possible to prevent infection and vision loss.
- Chemical Exposure & Burn: chemical splash or spray can burn or sting and lead to irritation, pain, conjunctivitis, light sensitivity, eye abrasions, blurry vision, watery discharge and foreign body sensation. Household and industrial chemicals can be quite dangerous. If you experience chemical exposure, run water into the eye for about 15 minutes, then seek medical assistance.
- Traumatic Iritis: traumatic iritis is inflammation of the colored part of the eye that surrounds the pupil and occurs after an eye injury. Traumatic iritis usually requires treatment. Seek medical help to reduce the risk of permanent vision loss.
- Hyphemas & Orbital Fractures: Hyphemas and blowout fractures are eye injuries caused by significant blunt trauma to the eye and face. These incidents require quick medical attention.
