    Analysis of Bottled Water: Is It Safe for Use with
    Contact Lenses ?

    There
    is a general belief that bottled water is sterile
    and can be used safely, to clean contact lenses.

        

    Examination
    of 23 brands showed that 37% of bottled water showed
    pathogens including coliforms. Not only such contaminated bottled water are unsafe for cleaning
    contact lenses but they can cause waterborne
    diseases.

    Enteropathogenic Escherichia-coli (EPEC) is an
    important cause of childhood diarrhoea. It is a type
    IV pilus-producing organism.
    Type IV pilus called the bundle-forming pilus
    (BFP) is necessary for the development of localized
