Default Company Alerted to Contact Lens-Related Infections in November

ROCHESTER, N.Y. Officials at Bausch and Lomb say the company was alerted last fall to a rise in infections among contact lens wearers in Hong Kong.
The Rochester-based eye care products maker recently halted U-S sales of a contact lens cleaner linked to an apparent outbreak of a severe fungal eye infection.

Today, Bausch and Lomb's spokeswoman said health officials in Hong Kong told the company back in November that they had seen an increase in hospital admissions due to lens-related nfections. But the company official said investigations by both Hong Kong and Bausch and Lomb found no cause-and-effect link to the company's ReNu with MoistureLoc solution.

The company suspended U-S shipments of the product earlier this month when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed it was scrutinizing a rise in eye infections in Americans using the product.

U-S health officials have found no direct link between MoistureLoc and the infections.
