In 2010, the FDA issued a recall associated with the CONSTELLATION® Vision System, which is a medical device manufactured by Alcon Laboratories and utilized to assist in the performance of various eye surgeries. The problems associated with the device generally involve the software and hardware associated with the system, which causes certain errors and the device to shut down unintendedly. These errors and unanticipated shutdowns of the CONSTELLATION® Vision System during surgery can cause permanent eye injury or blindness.
Months after the recall, the manufacture attempted to remedy the problems; however, it did not remove the device from the treatment facilities.
