Doc­tors dis­cover 17 lenses in eye

Irish Daily Mail - - News -

DOC­TORS in­tend­ing to per­form cataract surgery on a 67-year-old woman in Britain found some­thing rather un­ex­pected: 17 con­tact lenses mashed to­gether in her right eye.

In a case re­port pub­lished yes­ter­day in the Bri­tish Med­i­cal Jour­nal, the doc­tors said that the woman had worn monthly dis­pos­able con­tact lenses for 35 years; she had ‘deep-set eyes’, which they said might have contributed to a fail­ure to re­move the lenses. The doc­tors said the lenses were bound to­gether by mu­cus.
