The AP (7/26) reports, “More than 70,000 children and teens go to the emergency” department “each year for injuries and complications from medical devices and contact lenses are the leading culprit, the first detailed national estimate suggests.” Researchers at the Food and Drug Administration found that “about one-fourth of the problems were things like infections and eye abrasions in contact lens wearers.”\
