Contact Lens Solutions With Hydrogen Peroxide: To Avoid Injury, Follow All Instructions - FDA

Read the full article: Consumer Updates > Contact Lens Solutions With Hydrogen Peroxide: To Avoid Injury, Follow All Instructions - FDA:

"Before you use solution with hydrogen peroxide, read all warning labels and instructions. Also note that the tip of the bottle is red. The red coloring is a reminder that these products require special handling.

“You should never put hydrogen peroxide directly into your eyes or on your contact lenses,” Lepri says. That’s because this kind of solution can cause stinging, burning, and damage—specifically to your cornea (the clear surface that covers your eye).

If you use a solution that has hydrogen peroxide you absolutely must follow the disinfecting process with a “neutralizer.” A neutralizer is always sold as part of your hydrogen peroxide cleaning solution kit. It turns the peroxide into water and oxygen, making it safe to put lenses into your eyes."

Families Of Cancer Patients Prefer Less Aggressive End-Of-Life Care Focused On Comfort : LIFE : Tech Times

Read the full article: Families Of Cancer Patients Prefer Less Aggressive End-Of-Life Care Focused On Comfort : LIFE : Tech Times:

"Medical experts said that if a family and/or patient considers hospice care preferable to more aggressive hospital treatment, it should be communicated to doctors or caregivers as soon as possible.

"Don't wait for someone to suggest hospice," urges Dr. David Casarett, head of palliative care for Penn Medicine in Philadelphia. "By the time that a doctor thinks about hospice as an option, and suggests it, it's often too late."

A hospice or home hospice care may be better at providing pain or symptom management along with spiritual and emotional support, he says."
