I can see clearly now the truth has come. Medical research has removed all obstacles in our way.

Federal disease control experts and leading eye doctors have formally concluded that Bausch & Lomb�s ReNu with MoistureLoc was the only contact lens solution contributing to an outbreak of potentially blinding fungal eye infections earlier this year.
But the researchers� report, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, says it remains unclear how the product caused the problems.
And an accompanying commentary by two academic researchers, meanwhile, argues that further study is needed to gauge the safety profile of all the various brands of �multipurpose� lens-care solutions on the market that, like MoistureLoc, are used for cleaning, storing and moistening soft contact lenses.
The research report challenged Bausch & Lomb�s argument that a major factor in the outbreak was customers� failure to properly clean their lenses and regularly replace the storage solution."
