I am an ex-user of Bausch & Lomb's Renu Multi-Purpose Solution. I am not surprise when I read in The Star that this multi-purpose solution is causing fungal eye infection.
In December, I started facing problems with my contact lens. At first I thought it was the lens. I have been using Acuvue disposable lens (1-month) for many years and never have such problem until I started using the multi-purpose solution in that month. I have to change the lens just after two days of using them because I felt sharp pain in my eyes. Then I decided to stop using the solution to see if that's the cause to my problem. I was right.
I thought it was my eyes that were sensitive and not suitable in using the Renu brand. Now I know I was not alone. Hopefully our Ministry of Health will investigate and stop users from using them until they can prove the solution is safe for usage.
