(Video) What In The World? Woman Has 23 Contacts Removed From Her Eye
Just when you think something couldn't happen someone in the world is doing that very thing. The world gets crazier by the day, so why should anything surprise us these days? I don't even know how what I am about to tell you even happened.
A woman in New Port Beach, California, had an appointment with her ophthalmologist for whatever reason and the doctor figured out something very interesting, the woman had 23 contacts in one eye. In the video below you can see the removal and what she found. Initially, the doctor thought there were only about a dozen but she began to separate them and found a total of 23. She had to use Q-tips to gently remove them and a jewelry repair tool to separate them.
I know you are asking yourself, how did this happen? Don't worry, I asked the same question. How did she not know she already had one contact let alone 22 other ones? Didn't she feel the contact in her eye?
The doctor believes that the woman would go to sleep with her contacts in and when she would wake the next morning she would forget that she had not taken her contacts out the night before and put new ones in. I have to question that too! I know if I don't have my contacts in I can't see a thing so if I woke up and could see, I would know that I had my contacts in. If she could wake up and see 20/20, did she think a miracle happened overnight and she could see all of a sudden? I don't think I will ever understand this one.
That is not the craziest part of this story. You would think that 23 would be a record number of contacts someone had in their eye but no! The record is 27. A woman in the U.K went see to her eye doctor to have cataract surgery and at first they found 17 contact lenses in her eye and they ended up finding 10 for a total of 27 that had been in her eye for over 35 years.
