Is the rate of in-use ophthalmic medication contamination of public health importance? This appears to be what the current situation is as shown by the report of investigators from the University of Cape Coast Ghana who found 94 out of 100 ‘in −use’ samples of eye drops collected from patients to be contaminated by a wide range of organisms including pseudomonas and aspergillus. This may justify the recommendation of single dose eye drops to ensure patient safety. However cost and affordability in low income countries remains an issue to contend with. Other important articles in this edition of the journal include a study which examined teachers’ knowledge attitude and practice related to pupils eye health and school based eye health services. The researchers reported that teachers’ knowledge attitude and practice related to pupils eye health and school based health services was poor and called for a structured workshop in schools to correct the knowledge gap of teachers.

Another study which screened preschool children aged 3-5years from a Local Government Area in Ilorin Nigeria observed a high prevalence of vision impairing conditions in preschool children and called for institution of pre-school screening programs to ensure early detection.

We encourage our readers to pick up a copy of this edition for the other interesting articles.
