Contact Lenses

Dr Morjaria published the case in the British Medical Journal and hopes that it will lead to more awareness about proper contact lens care and eye health.

Medics have discovered a "blueish mass" of 17 contact lenses in the eye of a woman bade for cataract operation at a hospital in the United Kingdom (UK).

She told Optometry Today: "It was such a large mass". So I have no clue how this woman managed to stick 27 contact lenses in her eye.

Rupal Morjaria told Optometry Today: "None of us have ever seen this before". She had been wearing monthly disposable lenses for 35 years but had neither reported any problems nor had regular optometrist appointments. Recently, a case surfaced about a woman who had 27 contact lenses dug in her eye and she had no idea where they were. We were astounded to see that the patient had not felt, because it has cause a good number of irritations as it was in place.

Morjaria added that the patient, who did not report any discomfort before the assessment, said that her eyes feel "more comfortable" after the removal of the painful clump of lenses.

A large "bluish mass" of 17 contact lenses was initially detected by surgeons in November past year before ten more lenses were discovered during further examination at Solihull Hospital in the west midlands, reported Optometry Today. Clinicians that were involved couldn't believe that the women had so many lenses lost in her eyes.

With the discovery, the patient's cataract surgery was pushed back as she had a higher risk of contracting endophthalmitis.

She said: "She was quite shocked. She thought her previous discomfort was just part of old age and dry eye". This is why even the FDA recommends that in order to allow the eye to take oxygen, even the long-term contact lenses should ideally be removed overnight at least once a week.

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