Bausch and Lomb Recalls Toxic Contact Lens Cleaner

Bausch & Lomb has withdrawn the contact lens cleanser ReNu with MoistureLoc from the market. The cleanser is considered to be the "potential root cause" of the widespread outbreak of Fusarium keratitis, a fungal eye infection that can cause blindness.

Extensive federal inspections of Bausch & Lomb's factory have found no evidence of contamination, leading some to speculate that Alexidine, a disinfectant traditionally used in mouthwashes that was recently added to the MoistureLoc recipe, may be responsible for the outbreak.

In some circumstances, its fungicidal properties may deteriorate, allowing fungal growth to occur.

There have been 122 confirmed cases of Fusarium keratitis in the United States and more overseas; most of the cases have been contact lens wearers who use MoistureLoc. About 2.3 million Americans used MoistureLoc.

While contacts seem relatively benign, they certainly are not natural and we were never designed to wear them. So it is not surprising to me that something like this could occur.

So, in addition to the daily hassles of wearing contact lenses -- and the costs that in just a few years typically adds up to thousands of dollars (including the replacement contacts, solutions, check-ups, etc.) -- now you have to worry about the solution you are using causing major health issues, too?

Do you really need more to worry about in your life?

If you answered yes, you want even more to worry about, then DON'T consider the Secrets to Regaining Your Vision Naturally Program that can help you throw away your contacts and glasses, and save thousands in the process. If improving your vision extensively without any risks does interest you, though, read on:

I Was So Impressed with the Results to My Own Eyesight that I Need to Share This With You

Despite my healthy lifestyle, about eight years ago I started noticing a progressive worsening of my eyesight. It became more difficult for me to read fine print and reading a menu in many dimly lit restaurants became nearly impossible.

After many years of searching for a way to correct the problem naturally, Dr. Larry Clapp told me about an eyesight teacher in California. This teacher taught me the important visual habits (all covered in the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally Program) that helped restore my eyesight and helped me read without the use of glasses.

I learned the techniques of pioneering medical doctor and ophthalmologist Dr. William Bates, who dedicated his life to learning why people develop problems with their eyesight. 

I was so impressed by my own results and the research my team and I did on the history and success of the Bates Method that I decided to offer this powerful natural vision improvement training to Mercola.com readers (at a far more affordable rate than I paid for it, as you will see).

How You Can Toss Out Your Contacts or Glasses for Good -- Guaranteed

There's NO reason for you to waste thousands of dollars over the course of your life on glasses or contacts,  NO reason to risk injuries from glasses or LASIK surgery, and NO reason to put up with the hassle of glasses and contacts anymore:

The Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally Program -- based on the very same scientific tenets that corrected my vision too -- requires a relatively low commitment of time on your part, is NOT about doing any "eye exercises," and has already helped many tens of thousands of other people improve their vision (check out What Others Have to Say when you click to the page above!).

You'll see that, for about the cost of just one eye doctor appointment and new glasses (which you could eliminate the need to pay for ever again), the program is truly a no-brainer for those who wear glasses or contacts ... so I strongly encourage you to learn more about the Secrets of Regaining Your Vision Naturally Program now.
