Ragland Law Firm, LLP Files Lawsuit in an Atlanta Federal Court Against Bausch & Lomb on Behalf of a Woman Who Contracted a Fusarium Kerotitis Infection after Using the Company’s ReNu with Moisture Loc Product.

Ragland Law Firm, LLP announces that it has filed a lawsuit in an Atlanta federal court against Bausch & Lomb, Inc. alleging that a North Carolina woman suffered a Fusarium Keratitis infection after using the company’s “ReNu® with Moisture Loc® Multi-Purpose Solution” between March and May 2006. The Plaintiff was living in DeKalb County, Georgia at the time, and she purchased the defective Bausch & Lomb ReNu with Moisture Loc product, along with new prescription soft contact lenses, from a “Pearl Vision” store in Lithonia, Georgia. Fusarium Kerotitis is a serious fungal eye infection that can develop through the whole depth of the cornea. In her lawsuit, the Plaintiff alleges that the Fusarium fungal infection led to redness, swelling, light sensitivity, pain and discharge from her eyes and that despite immediate medical attention, she now suffers permanent corneal scarring, blurred vision and frequent eye discharge. The Plaintiff seeks to recover special damages for her medical expenses and loss of income, as well as general damages for her physical pain & suffering and emotional injuries. In addition, the lawsuit seeks punitive damages on grounds that Bausch & Lomb allegedly was reckless in continuing to market a product it “knew or should have known was defective and posed unreasonable risks to consumers,” and “purposefully concealing and withholding information from the FDA and consuming public about such hazards.” The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, on July 16, 2007.
