Surgeon finds 27 contact lenses in woman's eye

Woman found with 27 contact lenses lodged in one eye
Medical staff members at Solihull Hospital in the United Kingdom were preparing the 67-year-old for a routine cataract surgery when they discovered she had 27 contact lenses in her eye, NPR reports.
Morjaria said she hopes the episode, which occurred last winter, raises awareness for patients who wear contacts but might go long periods without getting an eye exam - perhaps because they order them online rather than in person.
She had been wearing monthly disposable lenses for 35 years but had neither reported any problems or had regular optometrist appointments.
"None of us have ever seen this before", she said. It was such a large mass.
A woman came in with a "bluish foreign body" in her eye to undergo cataract surgery, and stunned doctors when the object turned out to be a mass of contact lenses. Part of their surprise, she said, was because the patient hadn't complained of any irritation.
Later in the surgery, Morjaria discovered an additional 10 lenses in the patient's eye.
Morjaria said she decided to make the case public to raise awareness of the importance of regular check-ups with optometrists. After she found that her eye has been harbouring 27 contact lenses, she was just as shocked as the doctors were. This is why even the FDA recommends that in order to allow the eye to take oxygen, even the long-term contact lenses should ideally be removed overnight at least once a week.
This highlights the importance of selecting appropriate patients for the use of contact lenses and monitoring contact lens wearers, it added.
