LONDON (AP)- Medical professionals meaning to carry out cataract surgical treatment on a 67-year-old woman in Britain found something rather unforeseen: 17 contact lenses mashed together in her ideal eye.
In a case report published Monday in the journal BMJ, the doctors stated that the woman had actually used regular monthly disposable contact lenses for 35 years; she had “deep set eyes” and poorer vision because eye, which they stated may have contributed to a failure to get rid of a few of the lenses.
The physicians said the 17 lenses were bound together by mucous. A further 10 were found by the surgeon using a microscopic lense. Rupal Morjaria, an expert student in ophthalmology, said the “large mass” would have triggered quite a lot of irritation.
The client had chalked it as much as aging and dry eye, Morjaria said.
It’s unknown whether the lady had any appointments with an optometrist before the clump was found, but doctors stated they do not believe she would have had routine checkups.
