Indian-origin doctor finds 27 contact lenses in woman's eye in UK

Surgeons found 27 contact lenses lodged in a woman's eye.

Details of the case, which occurred in November a year ago at Solihull Hospital, West Midlands, were recently outlined in the British Medical Journal (BMJ).

She said that she had noticed a bit of dryness and itching, but had not even noticed that any lenses had gone missing.

She told Optometry Today: "It was such a large mass".

As per reports, such a large number of contact lenses in her eye were most probably because of the disposable contact lenses that she had been using.

Said Ms Morjaria about the patient: "When she was seen two weeks after I removed the lenses she said her eyes felt a lot more comfortable".

Further investigation by the doctors revealed a further 10 contact lenses behind then woman's eye. How?! Why?!

Woman 35 years of wearing lenses instead of glasses. "We were really surprised that the patient did not notice it because it would cause quite a lot of irritation while it was sitting there". She did mention that there was "some discomfort" but thought that it was due to old age and dry eyes.

The patient had reported no symptoms about the missing lenses during pre-operative test and Morjaria and her team said they decided to make this case public because they'd previously believed it was not possible to retain such a large number of contact lenses in one's eye without having any symptoms or noticeable irritation.

The woman's cataract surgery has been postponed to allow bacteria that had gathered in her eye to clear up.

It was around 2pm when the police arrived the spot to rescue the man. "It's got to be a joke", Senior Officer Richard Olden said. With nobody to help he chose to grab customer's attention and it worked.


Dr. Morjaria pointed out that people use lenses all day long and they don't monitor their deterioration.

She wanted a simple cataract removal surgery but as she visited the doctor, she received the shock of her life.

"Contact lenses are used all the time", said Morjaria.

Experts believe that there's a lesson to be learned in the "27 contact lens" patient's case - people should not take optometrist appointments for granted.
