Thirty-seven of 120 people who experienced a severe fungal infection from using Bausch & Lomb’s RuNu with MoistureLoc contact solution have required corneal transplants, according to an article on health.msn.com. That’s 31%, and experts expect that the percentage may climb as high as 50 percent. Bausch & Lomb permanently removed the contact solution, which was used by about 2.3 million Americans, on April 13.

Dr. Robert Cykiert of the New York University School of Medicine said, “Anybody who has MoistureLoc at home should throw it out and not use it.”
