Eye specialists in Britain find 27 contact lenses stuck in woman's eye

Hey all, I’m up late doing more cataract cure research and happened upon this crazy article. Thought it was hilarious and horrifying at the same time. She was wearing monthly lenses. :rofl: :upside_down_face: :rofl: :upside_down_face:

Check out the link for more of the article and to see pictures.

That is crazy and weird at the same time. How can you forget to take that many lenses out? When I think about it as a contact lens wearer it just sounds like fake news to me

I also don’t understand how she could see at all. Even if it was a -1.00 diopter, having 27 of them means she wore -27.00 diopter.

Wouldn’t it be possible that she added them progressively as the cataract made her eyes go worse and worse?
This is sad. I hope they got it all sorted out in the end. :frowning:

Whoa. This smells like fake news. Then again, it sounds so crazy it may be true?? :crazy_face:

I first found the story in The Telegraph and it’s also in the Washington Post and New York Times, but they are all behind paywalls so I found the free article above. Sounds insane but I assume it’s legit.
