The manufacturer of EzriCare Artificial Tears, Global Pharma, has caused an uproar across the United States as many people are finding out that they have Pseudomonas aeruginosa eye infections. This type of infection is causing serious and life-changing side effects. Therefore, several people are starting to question whether they can receive compensation for injuries from taking over-the-counter eye drops or not.
Why are these types of bacteria a threat to the eyes?
Although bacteria can enter the eyes of many healthy people and they never see or feel any threat, some people can suffer deadly consequences. The American Academy of Ophthalmology stated that Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an “opportunistic human pathogen, known to cause a variety of infectious diseases.”
In early 2023, it was reported that EzriCare eye drops were directly linked to an outbreak of eye infections spreading around the country. Some people may have initially thought that an eye infection is not very alarming as they can typically be treated with a few eye drops or antibiotics. However, Pseudomonas aeruginosa is resistant to many antibiotics, creating a very dangerous situation quickly.
As a matter of fact, 68 people in 16 states have been diagnosed with Pseudomonas aeruginosa eye infections so far. Of these 68 individuals, three have passed away, eight have reported vision loss, and four had their eyeballs removed. Therefore, this type of infection is spreading, thriving, and causing turmoil in people’s lives.
