ATTENTION PATIENTS: IMPORTANT RECALL INFORMATION
It has recently come to our attention that Bausch & Lomb has fully recalled their contact lens PeroxiClear Solution. Our office had only carried the solution in sample format, and all of the samples have been disposed of.
We recommend that if you use or have purchased the Bausch & Lomb PeroxiClear Solution, that you dispose of it to avoid symptoms as indicated in the statement below, from Bausch & Lomb.
PeroxiClear 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting Solution
Voluntary Recall of PeroxiClear 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting Solution in the U.S. and Canada
Bausch + Lomb is conducting a voluntary recall, Type II, of PeroxiClear® 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaning & Disinfecting solution in the U.S. and Canada. PeroxiClear is a specialty contact lens solution with a special lens case and neutralizing disc. PeroxiClear is indicated for soft and rigid gas permeable contact lenses.
Although this voluntary recall represents low risk to the consumer and is unlikely to cause serious health consequences, the company is voluntarily recalling the product from retailers, wholesalers, and eye care professionals out of an abundance of caution and as part of our ongoing commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. It is unlikely that we will be able to return the product to the marketplace within 12 months
The company chose to initiate this voluntary action based on internal testing that simulated normal product use. Testing showed occasional occurrences where the residual peroxide remaining in the lens case after neutralization was out of product specification.
PeroxiClear solution is unlikely to cause serious health consequences. If the residual hydrogen peroxide is above product specification the user of the product could experience temporary symptoms of burning/stinging, irritation, red eye and in rare circumstances other more serious health consequences.
This voluntary recall is limited to PeroxiClear only. No other Bausch + Lomb products are affected by this voluntary recall.

“I had an excellent experience at the Langford location. In booking my initial appointment, I found the staff very helpful and informative over the phone – letting me know what my visit would entail (I think this is very important and it was nice not to have to ask these questions!). I was welcomed by the friendly reception staff and I had my appointment with Dr. Meister – who was fantastic! The appointment was very thorough and Dr. Meister answered all my questions, leaving me well informed. I felt like I was well taken care of!”
“Very accommodating and thorough examinations performed! Very happy!!”
“So helpful, don’t do extra tests when they aren’t needed, staff who are willing to say, “I’m not sure those purple floral eyeglasses
are quite what you’re looking for” (when you don’t have contacts in).. and amazing optometris t and front floor staff”
“We would like to express our thanks and appreciation for the wonderful, friendly, expert examinations and glasses fittings”
“Once again a very thorough eye exam with Dr Morin. Dr Morin always takes the time to review and explain any changes in your vision, patiently answering any and all questions you may have. Office staff is friendly and helpful too. If you need an eye examinatio
n for yourself of family member I highly recommend the offices of Dr. Joslin, Dr. Morin & Associates : Doctors of Optometry.“
