It is understood that the MHRA is looking into reports of increased intraocular pressure involving EyeCee One products, with a device safety information notification issued at the start of the year.
This matter is, of course, a particularly serious investigation given the potential consequences of vision loss for patients if something has gone wrong. It is understood that the underlying causes of the potential problems have yet to be identified, but we expect that a thorough investigation will be completed by both the manufacturer and the MHRA.

Reports of increased intraocular pressure – EyeCee One
The MHRA – the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency – has recently issued a publication in respect of reports of increased intraocular pressure involving EyeCee One preloaded and EyeCee One crystal preloaded intraocular lenses. According to the MHRA, these are manufactured by NIDEK and distributed by Bausch + Lomb U.K. Ltd.
The MHRA has outlined that a device safety information notification was issued in January, and potentially affected products are to be quarantined for further investigations. As things currently stand, the underlying causes of the potential problems have yet to be identified.

This is a serious matter that needs to be looked into given that increased intraocular pressure could potentially lead to optic nerve damage and may also lead to loss of vision if it is not treated quickly enough. When such medical products are designed to improve people’s vision, it is alarming that the opposite could potentially happen instead.
Similar cases we have helped people with
This is not the first recall that relates to interocular eye product matters, and we have previously represented people for legal claims for compensation when there have been issues and problems. One such previous example involved Oculentis products, and there were also routine recalls initiated in respect of those matters.
Any potential negligence claim involving the eye can, of course, be incredibly serious. Any loss of vision can leave victims with serious long-term problems and damage, so this is a matter that needs to be thoroughly investigated and resolved as soon as possible. If anyone has suffered any irreversible damage, as well as making sure to get the medical help and advice that is needed, people should consider seeking legal advice as well.
