Contact wearers: Have you ever forgot to take them out over night? Well this story will help you feel better. A doctor has spoken about a recent experience in which she had to remove 23 contact lenses from a woman eye!
Dr. Katerina Kurteeva shared the video on her social media of the patient who came in saying she was feeling pain and her vision was turning blurry. It turns out the patient, who is in her 70's had forgotten she was wearing the contacts, and kept putting them in.
"So next thing I know, I'm pulling on this blob and it's like a deck of cards. Basically, these contact lenses, they're very thin and they're very smooth. So over time, they just kind of created this kind of like a pancake of contacts, and they're all congealed. But once I started going at them with a Q-Tip, it was kind of like doing a deck of cards. They were just all coming out one after the other,"
