The company had first issued the statement on August 19 after it was found that the lenses were linked to pain, red eye and blurred vision by wearers.

However on Tuesday, the FDA said that more effort needs to be made by CooperVision in order to alert its customers over the potential risks posed by the lenses.

FDA spokeswoman Morgan Liscinsky expressed hoped that the latest announcement will help more people realize the dangers of buying the lenses but warned that the agency will issue a separate warning if the announcement by CooperVision did not have the desired impact.
