Anyone who's ever worn contact lenses knows that it's basically impossible to not know if one's gotten stuck in there.
That is, of course, unless you're the 67-year-old woman who had 27 FREAKIN' LENSES STUCK IN HER EYE AND DIDN'T REALIZE.
HOW? WHY? WHAT? MOM??????
Dr. Rupal Morjaria authored an article in the British Medical Journal stating the discovery of the "blueish mass" that was "bound together by mucus" when doctors went to perform cataract surgery on the woman.
“She was quite shocked,” Morjaria told Optometry Today of the woman's reaction. “When she was seen two weeks after I removed the lenses she said her eyes felt a lot more comfortable.” UM, NO KIDDING.
As for why she had no idea they were in there, the BMJ article said it may have had to do with her deep-set eyes.
