    27 Contact Lenses Are Found in Woman’s Eye, Doctors Report

    By NIRAJ CHOKSHIJULY 17, 2017

    For years, she had assumed that the strange sensation in her right eye was just a part of a changing body, nothing worth troubling over.

    Fortunately for the unidentified 67-year-old woman, doctors preparing her for routine cataract surgery last November discovered the source and removed it. Unfortunately for the squeamish, the cause was the stuff of nightmares: The woman’s eye had become home to a hard, bluish mass of nearly 30 contact lenses held together by mucus.
