Important Information

CooperVision, the manufacturer of Hy-Care Multipurpose Contact Lens Solution, has informed Boots Opticians of a recall of this product from the market.

Please be assured that this is a voluntary recall and there are no known safety incidents – however we are taking precautions to ensure the safety of our customers. As such, we ask you to read the below information carefully. 

The following communication has been provided by CooperVision regarding this recall:

CooperVision® Hy-Care multipurpose contact lens solution

We have been advised of a voluntary recall by contact lens solutions manufacturer, CooperVision, of Hy-Care® multipurpose contact lens solution (60ml and 250ml, 360ml bottles).

The manufacturer’s quality testing determined that the product may not offer appropriate levels of disinfection in some circumstances against high levels of a particular yeast organism. Although no complaints have been received and there have been no confirmed incidents attributed to inadequate disinfection, this action is being taken as a precautionary measure.

A website will soon be available on this page where you will be able to go for information on what to do and how to process a refund for your Hy-Care® multipurpose contact lens solution. We anticipate the recall website will be ready to process refunds during the last week of February and ask that you please check this page again. Thank you for your patience.

It is important you continue to clean and disinfect your soft contact lenses. Please cease use and discard your HyCare® multipurpose solution once you have secured an alternative multipurpose solution. Please retain the bottle in order to obtain your reimbursement through the recall website www.CVrecall.expertinquiry.com.

We appreciate this product recall may impact on your ability to wear your contact lenses.
