When an unnamed 67-year-old British woman went to her eye doctor complaining of “dry eyes” and docs prepped her for cataract surgery…but her issue was something far more significant.
Apparently, the woman had been wearing disposable contacts for 35 years, never had regular follow-up visits to the doc. Oh…and she never took the suckers out.
By the time the surgery was done, doctors had pulled a staggering 27 contact lenses off her eyeballs.
Heck, 17 of them were stuck together in one mass. Two weeks after the surgery, the patient reported her eyes as feeling “much more comfortable.”
