Avaira Toric Soft Contact Lens Use

AVAIRA Toric contacts are single-use, disposable contact lenses used to treat both near or far-sightedness in people with astigmatisms. They are predominantly sold in Wal-Mart, Costco and Lenscrafters.

In August, CooperVision began a “quiet” recall of the AVAIRA Toric contacts. Eye care professionals and retailers were informed of the recall, but many consumers only found out about the recall after they were injured and sought medical attention.

Side Effects

Consumers of the defective AVAIRA Toric Soft contact lenses have experienced the following side effects:

  • Hazy or blurry vision
  • Discomfort to the eye
  • Torn corneas
  • Corneal abrasion

If you have been using AVAIRA Toric contact lenses and have experienced any of these symptoms, stop using the contacts immediately and contact our attorneys to see if you have a claim.
