The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has noted that nearly two-thirds of contact lens wearers who contracted eye infections reported using Bausch & Lomb’s ReNu with Mositureloc. The number of confirmed cases of fungal infection or Fusarium keratitis, has increased to dramatically in recent days to a number well over 100 according to the CDC.
According to ABCNEWS.Com
Without eye-drop treatment, the infection can scar the cornea and blind its victims. At least eight patients have required cornea transplants. Because it’s not a disease that doctors must report, it is unclear how many cases occur annually.
The CDC has verified that 93 out of 98 confirmed cases for which it has complete data involved contact lens users. Of those, 59 patients, or 63 percent, reported using MoistureLoc and 19 others, or 20 percent, said they used an older and more widely used Bausch & Lomb solution called ReNu MultiPlus.
