More Contact Lens Problems?

An FDA committee will convene June 10th to discuss recent safety concerns with contact lens cleaning solutions. While some doctors cite improper cleaning technique as an ongoing problem, the FDA remains concerned about the safety and quality of some contact lens cleaning solutions.
Advanced Medical and Bausch & Lomb have both recall contact lens solutions that were linked to potentially blinding infections. Bausch & Lomb’s Renu with MoistureLoc was pulled from the market in 2006 after it was linked to a fusarium fungus.
