I was impressed how quickly my claim was dealt with especially when I heard many claims take 2-3 years.

Product liability » Eye products and PL


Of late, concern has been documented about eye products and their potential to cause personal injury. A news report in June 2007 stated that women should be careful not to use their mascara for more than six months as they are at risk of sustaining an eye infection such as conjunctivitis. However, seeing as most eye make-up manufacturers recommend that the product should not be used after this time, resulting successful product liability claims are unlikely.

A study carried out by the College of Optometrists revealed that 92% of women continue to use their mascara after six months, two thirds use eye make-up after 12 months and thousands share mascara wands and eye shadow applicators around with their mates.

Cosmetic dermatologist, Hilary Allan has commented, Once a product is open and you are putting your fingers in it every day, there is a risk of bacterial overgrowth. Your skin carries its own bacteria but it can only cope with so much. If they multiply in a pot and are then transferred back to on your skin, they can give rise to spots, pustules and even crusty lesions.

The news about the risks that old mascara can bring to consumers was reported just one month after contact lens wearers in the UK were warned to beware as they could end up with a nasty eye infection if they rinse their contacts in a contaminated solution.

After Complete Moisture Plus was removed from sale in the US following a warning from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about links with acanthamoeba keratitis (AK), solution manufacturers Advanced Medical Optics (AMO) has made a recall. In a statement they said, The recall is being initiated because of concerns over eye infections from acanthamoeba, a naturally occurring water-borne organism which can contribute to serious corneal infections.

AMO added that the recall is not related to contamination and affirm that no other AMO products are affected. It seems that their actions are a precautionary measure against any users sustaining personal injury and having to make a product liability compensation claim.

According to AMO, those most at risk of developing AK are individuals who wear their contacts while swimming or taking a shower as they can be exposed to contaminated water.

So far AMO has not received any reports of any contact users in the UK suffering eye complaints although they should still be mindful. Symptoms to look out for include eye pain, redness, blurred vision and sensitivity to light.

An eye infection could lead to permanent loss of vision and the need to make a no win, no fee product liability claim for pain and suffering.
