Artificial Tears Lubricant Eye Drops – 10/31/2023

Last week the FDA issued a warning about the following brands of artificial tears due to a risk of eye infection: CVS Health, Leader (Cardinal Health), Rugby (Cardinal Health), Rite Aid, Target Up & Up, and Velocity Pharma. On 10.30, the Walmart Equate brand was also added (see release and more information at the link below).
 
At this time, there have been no known adverse effects (eye infections) reported. This is a precautionary move after discovering potential bacterial contamination at the manufacturing facility. If you use artificial tears (non-medicated lubricating eye drops) for dry eye, it is recommended that you check the brand before further use. Throw them away if they are one of the listed brands on the FDA site. This recall does not include all artificial tears – continue using other brands of artificial tears once you have determined they are not on the FDA recall list. Yellowhawk dispenses the Refresh brand artificial tears through Yellowhawk’s pharmacy. Patients who received drops from our pharmacy are okay to continue using as directed by your eye doctor, if you are unsure, please give your provider a call. If you have concerns about the brand of drops you are using, please stop using and call Yellowhawk Optometry at 541.240.8759 or stop by the Yellowhawk Optometry desk from 8 am-12 pm or 1-4 pm.
