To the Editor.  —During a 48-hour period, I saw two patients who had been using the new Ocuserts to control their glaucoma. They complained that while riding along expressways, they were almost involved in disastrous accidents. The Ocusert, which wandered under the upper lid, temporarily came over the cornea, while these persons were driving and blinking. One of them almost crashed into another car when he could not see temporarily.I think this complication of the use of Ocuserts is worth bringing to the attention of our ophthalmologic colleagues.
