Doctor finds 27 lenses in woman's eye

Doctors in shock after 27 missing contact lenses found in woman's eye

Now imagine not realizing you had 27 contact lenses stuck in your eye. The incident should also raise issues for optometrists, she said, noting that the mass of contact lenses hadn't triggered an obvious infection.

The woman had "deep set eyes", which might have contributed to the "unusually large number of retained foreign bodies", according to the case report.

The patient reportedly had not visited the eye doctor for a span of 35 years while she was wearing monthly contact lenses.

It is unclear how long the woman had been living with the contacts in her eye.

What was it? Oh, only 17 old contact lenses stuck together.

A further examination of her eyes yielded another 10 individual lenses, the ophthalmologist team told Optometry Today last week.




Expressing their amusement, the doctors said- "None of us have ever seen this before". She told surgeons she felt discomfort but thought it was due to dry eyes and her age. Double lid eversion and fluorescein staining of the ocular surface can reveal dislocated contact lenses in the upper fornix, ' they said in a report published by The BMJ.

Morjaria advised for the public to undergo regular checkups, and to take more precaution when using contact lenses.

The woman came in two weeks later, feeling "so much better", and had the surgery she had come in for in the first place. Oh, and this lady had no idea she had that many lenses in her damn eyeball.

Morjaria and her colleagues chose to publish the patient's case because the clinicians involved previously did not believe that it was possible to retain so many contact lenses in the eye without experiencing symptoms.

And while contact lenses are easily accessible for people who don't want to wear glasses all the time, some experts say those who wear them daily are at risk of infections and inflammation.
