Surgeons in the UK found a 17 contact lenses in a 67-year-old patient's eye. A subsequent examination found a further 10 lenses, bringing the total number of contacts up to a staggering 27.
Rupal Morjaria, a specialist trainee ophthalmologist who found the contacts, told Optometry Today "It was such a large mass. All the 17 contact lenses were stuck together. We were really surprised that the patient didn’t notice it because it would cause quite a lot of irritation while it was sitting there."
The patient was scheduled for cataract surgery, but the operation was postponed following the discovery. Watch the Video Below.
