Abstract

Recently, it was suggested that the use of the Advanced Medical Optics Complete MoisturePlus multipurpose cleaning solution might be a risk factor for contracting Acanthamoeba keratitis, and the manufacturer voluntarily recalled it in May 2007. Polymerase chain reaction amplification and sequencing of a variable part of the 18S rRNA gene allowed for the first time tracking of Advanced Medical Optics Complete MoisturePlus-associated Acanthamoeba keratitis isolate from a patient back to the lens cleaning solution itself.
