Using Certain Contact Lens Solutions may lead to Blindness

More than 100 cases of Fusarium eye infections have been reported to the CDC, and may be linked to use of contact lens solutions.

New York, NY - Evidence continues to mount that using certain contact lens solutions may cause severe eye infections that can lead to blindness. Incidents of Fusarium keratisis infection, which causes scarring of the cornia, continue to be reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Out of 58 confirmed cases, 32 people reported using Bausch & Lomb's ReNu with MoistureLoc lens solution, 15 people claimed they used ReNu MultiPlus solution, and another 7 people said they used other ReNu products. Other lens solutions implicated in causing infections are made by Alcon Inc. and Advanced Medical Optics Inc.

ReNu with MoistureLoc was pulled from store shelves last month when complaints of eye infections were reported after using the product.
