Federal regulators have recalled a surgical device made by Advanced Medical Optics Inc. after receiving reports the product caused inflammation in patients’ eyes. The recall by the Food and Drug Administration of the Healon D ophthalmic viscosurgical device came after the company started a voluntary recall. Advanced Medical, based in Santa Ana, California, voluntarily recalled the Healon D on October 30th, but only a portion of the units had been recovered by December 3rd, according to the FDA. An Advanced Medical spokesman said none of the recalled products is in public use and states there is “no risk it will be used in surgery.” The Healon D is classified as a low-risk device by the FDA and is used to maintain space in the eye during surgery.
