Another ReNu Sufferer

. By
"I am extremely glad I saw the ophthalmologist because he said, if left untreated, I could have gone blind. I am not sure what helped me: the antibiotic drops he gave me or that I just stopped using the ReNu," says Wendy Fink from Charleston, West Virginia.

All I know for certain is that I could be in a lot worse shape than I am today.

I thought I had pink eye and the doctor at the health clinic confirmed my diagnosis. He prescribed antibiotic drops and it cleared up. I waited 10 days to put my contacts back in but soon as I did, it flared up again in both eyes. I thought the ReNu solution had expired, but it was good through 2007. So I went to my family doctor and he said it could be from the contact solution but he wasn't certain so I had another lot of eye drops.

Those drops made it worse so the following morning I went to an ophthalmologist and he gave me yet some other drops. I waited another week before putting my contacts back in my eyes; right away they flared up again. I bought some generic contact lens solution this time and since then haven't had a problem.

As soon as I saw an ad on TV recalling ReNu with MoistureLoc I dug the empty bottle out of the garbage, to make sure it was indeed that brand. It was. As soon as the news broke about ReNu, the day the stores took it off their shelves, is when I heard about it.

When I originally thought it was pink eye, I was worried that my two-year-old would get it. And I missed a few days work. My dad came to visit, saw my eye and took off! He wouldn't even stay with me because he had a bad experience with pink eye a few years ago. There are so many repercussions from this product, not just my eye.

I haven't had any problems since I switched solutions. It was scary and I was worried that it was also contagious - my biggest concern was for my family. I want some kind of compensation. I'm not looking for much, just want to get back the $10 co-pay for my doctor visits and the four different drops. Especially the money back that I paid for ReNu.
