A “hard mass” that appeared to be a “bluish foreign body” was removed from the woman’s eye by surgeons who learned it was really 17 lenses fused together by mucus, The BMJ said in a report published this month.
Doctors used a microscope and found another 10 lenses in her eye.
The woman, who was not identified, said she has worn disposable contact lenses for 35 years – but didn’t regularly visit the eye doctor. She chalked up her eye discomfort to old age and dry eye.
Just wear glasses. Yes, you look better in contacts but you're not that great looking anyway.
