Abstract

It is estimated that 49% to 74% of cases of contact lens-associated ulcerative keratitis could be prevented by eliminating overnight wear.-Heavy alcohol consumption appears to be associated with all types of cataracts.- Cigarette smokers have a nearly threefold greater risk of developing age- related macular degeneration than nonsmokers.
