Contact lens solution infection may result in blindness - PCstats.com Contact lens solution infection may result in blindness

Seeing as how virtually all of us tecchies stare into a computer screen so long that a) glasses are our best friend, or b) without contacts we're blinder than bats... this product warning about a viral outbreak in some contact lens solution, is very important.

"Bausch & Lomb voluntarily suspended shipment of a contact lens solution after federal health officials linked it Monday to a fungal eye infection that can cause temporary blindness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating 109 reports of Fusarium keratitis infection in patients in 17 states since June 2005.

Federal and state health officials have interviewed just 30 of those patients. However, of the 28 who wore soft contact lens, 26 reported using Bausch & Lomb’s ReNu brand contact lens solution or a generic type of solution also made by the Rochester, N.Y., company.

Five of the 26 patients also reported using other types of solutions in addition to ReNu, Bausch & Lomb said. And nine said they wore their lenses overnight, which is known to increase the risk of infection, the CDC said."

Follow the link below for all the details in this story.
