coopervision contact lens solution

We have been advised of a voluntary recall by contact lens solutions manufacturer, CooperVision, of Hy-Care® and Prima multipurpose contact lens solution.

CooperVision’s quality testing determined that the product may not offer appropriate levels of disinfection in some circumstances against high levels of a particular yeast organism. Although no complaints have been received and there have been no confirmed incidents attributed to inadequate disinfection, this action is out of an abundance of caution.

It is very important you continue to clean and disinfect your soft contact lenses correctly. Please cease using your Hy-Care® and Prima solution once you’ve secured an alternative solution. Please retain any open and unused bottles to obtain your reimbursement through the recall website which has been set up by CooperVision.

If you are a MyLeightons customer, we will send you an alternative multipurpose solution in your next home delivery pack. This will be either All in One Light or Ote Sensation which has been recommended by our clinical team to support your requirements.

At Leightons, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to obtain your refund. CooperVision is using a partner organisation to complete their product recall and handle all customer reimbursements.

If you have any Hy-Care® and Prima solution, you should visit www.CVrecall.expertinquiry.com for more information on what to do next and learn how to claim your reimbursement. This website is the most effective and simple way to obtain your refund, so please enter your details there.
