The Blind Company

Bausch & Lomb, the company which has worried itself sick, because many of its customers went blind after being infected with an eye fungus, is happy again.

"The C.D.C.'s conclusion that the MoistureLoc formulation was the only product with a statistically significant association with reports of Fusarium keratitis in the cases they have evaluated should put to rest any further speculation that other products may also be implicated," Bausch & Lomb's chief executive, Ronald L. Zarrella, said in a statement.

(Ronald is the guy who looks like a chicken when he waves his arms on commercials and tries to get customers who have not already gone blind switch to another one of his products.)

Uh, maybe they weren't that worried about those blind customers, maybe they were worried about their other products and their bottom line . . . and maybe that's the reason they risked the eyesight of all their customers for three months after they pulled the lens cleaning solution in Asia.

I used Bausch contact lens products for 20 years, before I had Lasik eye surgery, and I'm mad.

Bausch & Lomb: We care. About ourselves.
