Doctors Find 27 Lenses In Woman's Eye During Surgery

A “routine” cataract surgery uncovered nearly 30 contact lenses stuck together in two separate chunks in a 67-year-old British woman’s eye.



Initially published in the British Medical Journal on July 5, the incident at Solihull Hospital in England has piqued the curiosity of eye patients and doctors alike with its peculiar ophthalmological fallout. The “blueish mass” was written off by the patient as simple discomfort caused by dry eyes or old age, The Bellingham Herald reports.

scheduled cataract surgery contained 17 contact lenses stuck together. A second set of 10 contacts were found grouped together on the same eyeball during continued examination. The operating team that included ophthalmologists with more than 20 years of experience had never made such an eye-opening finding.


“None of us have ever seen this before,” Rupal Morjaria 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.”

Due to an increased risk of endophthalmitis, the cataract surgery was postponed after the discovery of the more than two-dozen contacts in the patient’s eye. The woman, 67, told doctors she’d been wearing monthly disposable contact lenses for more than 35 years but didn’t make regular optometrist appointments.

@ Ammie!They are very thin so care is needed putting them in but once they're in and settled, you can hardly feel they're there.A very good contact lenses, lasting up to 8-10 hours depending so perfect for a work day. But I can wear them for around 12 hours a day.

Most are done by prescription. For me I have sensitive eyes and astigmatism. And must use the moist contact lenses. Not everyone is a fan of spec ( leaving dark mark on the bridge on ones couple with the kind of job I do.

Why are some ppl here so ignorant?.. contact lenses are usually worn as prescription TO BE ABLE TO SEE. not everyone likes wearing glasses or have something sitting on their face. That's why contacts were made. Google is your friend.

Most contact lenses are used instead of glasses. Not all are for fashion. Fashion ones bought the counter are the ones dt destroy the eyes.
