According to a clinical associate professor of ophthalmology at the University of Iowa, people have to stop - right now - using ReNu with MoistureLoc because there are way too many problems. Kenneth Goins says that he has at least a dozen cases presumed to be related to using Bausch & Lomb's ReNu with MoistureLoc.
His associate Christine Sindt, a University of Iowa clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology, discovered a problem with the Bausch & Lomb contact lens solution almost two years ago while conducting her own informal study. She soaked contact lenses in three different solutions overnight. The next day, Sindt examined five volunteers from her office for corneal staining also known as the presence of dead cells on the eye. Volunteers wore a pair of the contacts for one to two hours and were examined again. Sindt said the lenses soaked in ReNu with MoistureLoc had more eye staining than the other contact lens solutions.
She expressed her concerned with Bausch & Lomb who claimed the appropriate studies had been done or not needed to be done. Bausch & Lomb never contacted Sindt about her theory and she never prescribed ReNu with MoistureLoc to her patients. In the meantime contact lens wearers worldwide began reporting cases of fungal eye infections. Read the entire article. http://www.idsnews.com/news/story.php?id=36722&adid=campus
