According to Health Canada, Johnson & Johnson Vision Inc. has recalled one (1) master lot of J&J branded 1-Day Acuvue Moist Contact Lenses due to a limited number of confirmed reports of a lens that is not fully formed. Johnson & Johnson reports that to the potential wearer, the malformed lens should appear visibly smaller in diameter than usual, much thicker/stiffer than a normal soft contact lens, and more darkly tinted blue.

While the recalled Contact Lenses should not present an immediate risk to health and no serious adverse events have been reported, eye damage is theoretically possible if harder-than-normal Contact Lenses are placed in the eye.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Johnson & Johnson branded 1-Day Acuvue Moist Contact Lenses, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact the company at Johnson & Johnson Vision Inc. at 1-800-843-2020, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Eastern Standard Time, Monday to Friday.
