UK surgeon finds 27 missing contact lenses in woman’s eye

A “blueish mass” in a cataract surgery patient is the largest number of mislaid contact lenses the surgical team has seen

A “blueish mass” of 17 contact lenses has been discovered in the eye of a patient who was scheduled for cataract surgery.

The 67-year-old patient was unaware that the contact lenses were missing, and later told surgeons that she thought her discomfort was due to dry eye and old age.

Specialist trainee ophthalmologist, Rupal Morjaria, told OT that another 10 individual contact lenses were discovered in the woman’s eye following further examination at Solihull Hospital.

The operating team, which included an ophthalmologist with more than 20 years of experience, were startled by the discovery, Ms Morjaria explained.

“None of us have ever seen this before,” she added.

Yep... and you'd think she'd have seen them in the mirror with the Steve Austin vision she now had.

Ouch, how would you not know. Also how did she not get a nasty infection in her eyes! Regular visits to the optometrist are needed for a reason

i think if you look closely at the story you find that the patient thought it was old age and dry eyes.

Even so most people would get it checked out. Really shocked how she didn't get an infection.

27 lens would take a lot of time to accumulate. You are right. not having an infection is a miracle.

If you leave one pair in too long it can lead to an infection, the damage 27 lens could do would be horrible.
