The next time you forget to take out your contact lenses and think it’s no big deal, you should be reminded of this California woman. An ophthalmologist was visited by an elderly patient who came in for a routine eye exam and was shocked when she discovered as many as 23 forgotten contact lenses stuck under her eyelid. The doctor believes they had been there for about a month. She posted about it on Instagram and said she needed to use very fine surgical instruments to remove them all.
