Delsam Pharma Artificial Tears Linked to Infections

Simmons Hanly Conroy, a National Law Firm, along with its affiliated firm, Siri & Glimstad LLP, is investigating claims that Delsam Care Artificial Tears Lubricant Eye Drops caused eye infections in people who used them. Delsam Care is sold over the counter to relieve dry and irritated eyes. Recently, there have been a significant number of cases where people developed antibiotic-resistant eye infections following use of artificial tears. Some infections became so severe they led to permanent vision loss, hospitalization and even death when an infection got into the bloodstream.

In February 22, 2023, a nationwide recall was reported on Delsam Pharma artificial eye ointment. The FDA has also issued a warning to consumers and health care specialists to discontinue purchasing and cease using Delsam Pharma Artificial Tears and Eye Ointment. The CDC reported a bacterial outbreak related to Delsam Pharma eye ointments.

Additionally, the CDC has issued a warning that Delsam Pharma eye drops and eye ointments were reported to contain a certain strain of anti-biotic resistant bacteria. The CDC conducted extensive lab tests, which successfully identified the presence of this bacteria, known as "VIM-GES-CRPA" in certain bottles of Delsam Pharma artificial tear products, from several different batches of products. The bottles were received from consumers with and without eye infections after having consumed the Delsam Pharma dry eye products.
