In a hospital in Solihull in the UK the doctors took 27 of the contact lens from the eye of a 67-year-old woman who was recorded on the cataract surgery, according to CNN.
The patient complained of dryness and feeling of discomfort in the right eye. However, she did not suspect that may be the cause of this problem, and blamed everything on age. The doctors said they were «appalled» seen.
It turned out that the woman was wearing monthly contact lenses for 35 years. According to her, sometimes trying to pull the lens from the eye, she couldn’t find her and decided that she just had. In fact, the lenses were left in a woman in the eye.
The patient admitted that she now feels «much better.» However, the cataract operation was postponed because of the danger of falling inside the eye of the microbes that may have accumulated due to lenses.
