UK surgeon finds 27 missing contact lenses in woman's eye

When Rupal Morjaria began to perform cataract surgery on a 67-year-old patient, she was struck by the "blueish mass" that she discovered in the patient's eye.

Doctors found a "bluish foreign mass" in the patient's eye which were found to be the contacts, which were all stuck together. She thought that the discomfort she's being feeling is just a part of old age. She had originally chalked her discomfort up to dry eye and her advanced age, but as it turned out, 17 contact lenses were found in the affected eye at first.

"Because she had harbored these contact lenses in her eye for an unknown length of time, if we had operated she would have had a lot of bacteria" in her eye, Morjaria said. They then recovered another 10 lenses.
