Eye fungus outbreak among Contact wearers! I started wearing contacts when I was in 10th grade and they were well loved after having worn glasses for five years. I wore them for about 13 years before I got a bacterial ulcer (sounds similar in pain and possible consequences to what this article is talking about). I haven't worn them since. That was pain like I have never felt before. So contact wearers be careful. Good hand washing should help a lot, but I don't want any of you going through what I went through or what these people are going through.

Massachussets' lawmakers have just approved a sweeping change to how their state handles the uninsured.
