Link Between Fusarium and Bausch & Lomb Grows

Comments Off

According to a CDC released yesterday, the link between the eye fungus fusarium keratitis and Bausch & Lomb products continues to grow. Fungal keratitis is a painful inflammation of the cornea that can, in some cases, lead to blindness. The infection, caused by a fungus found in the environment, can appear as a result of eye injury, improper use of contact lenses or contaminated contact-lens products.
ReNu MultiPlus has been on the market since 1997 and has been used by an estimated 30 million people. ReNu with MoistureLoc, a much newer product, has about 2.3 million users, the company has said. The products are used to clean and disinfect contact lenses.
According to Bausch & Lomb, ReNu with MoistureLoc had 2005 sales of $45 million
