Reason

Through our monitoring process, Alcon has observed there is a potential for the optical head to detach from the stand on the Alcon or Endure LuxOR E71 Ophthalmic Microscope and Alcon or Endure LuxOR E71 Q-Vue Ophthalmic Microscope due to the lack of thread adhesive. This adhesive is designed to prevent unthreading of the mounting post.
