 Contamination:- Imagine using eye drops to soothe your dry, tired eyes, only to end up losing your vision permanently. This shocking reality is the result of contaminated artificial tears manufactured by a Chennai-based pharmaceutical company, Global Pharma Private Healthcare Limited. In a recent warning, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised consumers and healthcare practitioners to avoid using two of the company's products - EzriCare Artificial Tears and Delsam Pharma's Artificial Tears - due to the potential contamination with a dangerous bacteria.   Contamination Contamination Eye Drops Turn into a Living Nightmare: One Death, Multiple Blindnesses The use of contaminated artificial tears could lead to serious eye infections and even death, warns the FDA. The agency has imposed restrictions on the import of Global Pharma's products and the company has initiated a voluntary recall of all unexpired batches of the artificial tears. The warning comes amidst an outbreak of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the US, which has affected at least 55 people across a dozen states and caused at least one death. Five out of 11 patients with eye infections directly linked to the bacteria have lost their vision, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Midnight Inspection Uncovers Scary Reality In response to the FDA's warning, Tamil Nadu's Drug Controller and Central Drug Control Authority conducted a midnight inspection at Global Pharma. Samples were collected from batches sent to the US and unopened samples are currently being awaited. The inspection concluded at 2 am and the authorities have ordered the suspension of the production of ophthalmic solutions by the manufacturer. Your Health in Your Hands: Exercise Caution with Artificial Tears The inspection of Global Pharma highlights the need for stringent measures to ensure the safety and quality of pharmaceutical products. Consumers and healthcare practitioners are urged to exercise caution when using artificial tears and to take the FDA's warning seriously in order to avoid the risk of serious eye infections and other health complications. Don't let your next drop of relief turn into a living nightmare. Choose wisely and protect your health.
