Do you wear contacts? Ever forgotten to take one out?
How about forgetting 27 contact lenses in your eye? A 67 year old woman scheduled for cataract surgery last November thought it was just dry eye and old age causing her discomfort… little did she know… Doctors in the UK found the real cause of her discomfort was much more concerning: a cluster of 27 contact lenses stuck in the woman’s right eye! Her doctor’s were shocked because the woman hadn’t complained about any visual trouble before the operation. One Doctor said he’s seen many patients that have one lens stuck – but never 27. The woman had been wearing monthly disposable contact lenses for 35 years, but it’s unclear how long they had been gathering in her eye. The woman admitted to the surgeons that sometimes when she would try to remove a contact lens from that eye she couldn’t find it but just figured she’d dropped it somewhere.
THIS IS SO CRAZY!!!!!! How did she not feel them?! Or see that massive cluster? This blows my mind! And also makes me never want to wear contact lenses. But I’ve never wanted to wear contact lenses so I’m safe haha. I am #TeamGlasses 🙂
