The Shocking Case where Doctors removed 27 Contact Lenses stuck in a Woman’s Eye for Several Years

Almost every wearer of contact lenses will know what must be done while wearing them. You put them on in the morning and take them off at night. It’s a piece of cake really or is it? Apparently, for some, that isn’t so where doctors have found one of the weirdest cases concerning contact lenses. Believe it or not, doctors removed 27 contact lenses from a woman’s eye. Yes!! You heard that right!! In one of the most bizarre cases reported in the British medical journal, doctors revealed how they removed the excruciating 27 lenses from the eyes of a 67 year old woman admitted to Solihull Hospital England.

The problem concerning contact lenses wasn’t exactly the issue for which she was admitted to hospital. She was due for cataract surgery but while examining her eyes a surgeon found a bluish mass inside one of them.
