A woman and her doctor were both shocked to discover almost 30 contact lenses stuck together in the woman's eye when she went in for routine cataract surgery.

In a freakish incident, an eye specialist in the United Kingdom found 27 contact lenses stuck in the eye of a woman, media reports said.

Seventeen lenses were found by Rupal Morjaria, who noticed what he described as a "blueish mass", the Mirror reported.

Further investigation by the doctors revealed a further 10 contact lenses behind then woman's eye. How?! Why?!

"None of us have ever seen this before", said Morjaria. It was such a large mass.

Hartford Invest Mngmt invested 0.06% of its portfolio in Church & Dwight Co., Inc. (NYSE:CHD) for 6,200 shares. RBC Capital Markets maintained it with "Outperform" rating and $34 target in Monday, November 30 report.

It is noted that during the first examination, the doctor removed the lens 17, the second time the other ten. Part of their surprise, she said, was because the patient hadn't complained of any irritation.

The woman had been due to have cataract surgery, but it was postponed after the discovery.

Woman 35 years of wearing lenses instead of glasses.

Specialist trainee ophthalmologist Rupal Morjaria said the team were startled by the discovery.

Details of the case, which occurred in November previous year at Solihull Hospital, West Midlands, were recently outlined in the British Medical Journal (BMJ).

A 67-year-old woman thought that her eye discomfort was due to dry eye and old age. "She had poorer vision in the right eye and deep set eyes, which might have contributed to the unusually large number of retained foreign bodies", the article said. She had not reported specific symptoms before being taken in charge for its operation.

She wanted a simple cataract removal surgery but as she visited the doctor, she received the shock of her life. Amazing. Please take out your contact lenses.

Morjaria believes that the main takeaway of this case, where a patient has as many as 27 contact lenses stuck in one eye alone, is that it's important for people not to be lax about optometrist appointments.

This highlights the importance of selecting appropriate patients for the use of contact lenses and monitoring contact lens wearers, it added.
