Wearing cosmetic contact lenses might seem like a nice way to finish off a good Halloween costume, but they can cause serious eye injury, according to an association of ophthalmologists. Non-prescription contacts have been illegal since 2005 because they are considered medical devices but are still available in some stores and online, and customers seeking to augment their holiday outfits. Wearing them can result in permanent vision loss, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology . They may not be manufactured to meet federal health and safety standards, the group says, and cause cuts and sores in the protective layer of the iris and pupil or bacterial infections.

The House has proposed funding some individual government agencies and programs as a stopgap measure. The American Academy of Pediatrics is asking Congress to reopen the full government. As a pediatrician, if I see a kid coming in with a sore throat and a headache, I don't treat the headache today and say come back in a month for the sore throat. We need a holistic approach because there are so many programs that affect children. There is no one program that is "more essential" than the other.

In the world of the ninja, the Elrod family is an impressive force. Julie and Ron Elrod are black belts who travel to Japan annually to study their craft with Soke Hatsumi, the 34th-generation ninjutsu grandmaster. Their children, 21-year-old Kami and 24-year-old Wyatt, have followed in their footsteps, training with their parents. Experts in the art of self-defense, the Elrods are physically alert and sharp. They are not a family muggers would want to meet in a dark alley. Despite their physical prowess and skill with weapons, the Elrods are more welcoming than intimidating.

Your recent editorial on Howard County's ban on sugary beverages hit the mark ("A culture of healthy choices," Dec/ 13). On behalf of the American Academy of Pediatrics Maryland Chapter and our nearly 900 members statewide, I want to support Howard County Executive Ken Ulman for setting strong nutritional standards for the beverages sold on county property. Consumption of sugary drinks has been linked to obesity and the chronic diseases that are killing most Marylanders. Because of Mr. Ulman's actions, food and drinks served to young people by county departments in after-school programs, recreation and parks programs, and in county parks and libraries will now be more healthy.

Leave it to some thoughtful physicians to put good medicine ahead of good politics. Last year, the Obama administration wrongly chose to limit access of teens to the emergency contraceptive pill known as Plan B. This week, pediatricians are urging their fellow doctors to do something that should help correct that error. In a position paper released Monday, the American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that doctors prescribe Plan B to girls under the age of 17 regardless of whether they are sexually active - or have some "Plan A" contraceptive in place such as birth control pills.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is modifying its stance on circumcision for the first time in more than a decade, acknowledging that the health benefits outweigh the risks of the procedure, which involves removing the foreskin of a baby boy's penis. In new recommendations it plans to announce Monday, the group doesn't go as far as suggesting that all babies should have the operation. But when parents choose it for their sons, insurance companies and state Medicaid programs should pay for it, the academy now says.
