Receipt" tracking and follow up with consignees will be conducted according to the Effectiveness Check noted below. . - . The 0ff Axis condition is ~onsistent with a situation in which use of, or exposure to, the product is unlikely to cause adverse health consequences. A user may notice blurred vision due¿ to the axis being out of specification but removal of the lens effectively reduces/eliminates any impairment. There is currently no indication that use of a lens with an Off Axis condition will create an injury requiring medical intervention. No permanent impairment is anticipated with or without medical intervention. Based on the analysis " described in the attached Health Hazard Evaluation, CooperVision will initiate a Class Ill recall.
