Scientists discovered 27 contact lenses in a woman’s eye last November before she underwent eye surgery, according to an entry in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). The woman was being prepared for cataracts surgery at Britain’s Solihull Hospital when scientists discovered the lenses, according to the Washington Post. Scientists wrote that the contacts were lumped on top of one another in a “blueish mash” and were “bound together by mucus.” “She was quite shocked” Rupal Morjaria, a specialist trainee ophthalmologist who operated on the woman, said. “When she was seen two weeks after, I removed the lenses. She said her

I have worn glasses most of my life. The only thing I hate about them is that they always seem to need cleaning. I don´t know why people wear contacts. Vanity is the only reason I can come up with. Maybe there are other reasons, I don´t know. My one saving grace is I´m not vain. So I keep cleaning my foggy and smeared glasses. I´v never had to go under surgery to have them removed.

This was in Britain, so maybe there are things here that I just don´t understand but -- can someone tell my why a woman who had not seen an eye doctor in 35 years was being prepped for cataract surgery?

This is the expected result of government health care.
Every health ´professional´ not only missed this obvious situation, but she was diagnosed with cataract, a diagnosis that requires close examination of the eye.
Due you really want government employees that are watching a clock all day ´caring´ for you or your children? Or our grandmother?

I wear contacts, but they are gas permeable, not the daily wear. I still don´t understand how anyone can have that many lenses in and not be able to tell something is not right. I´ve worn lenses for 46 years and I´m always AWARE whether or not they are in my eyes! How did she keep getting more refills? Totally inept and/or negligent doctors!

I´m calling BS on this one. I have worn contacts. I don´t think its possible to have two in your eye without realizing something is wrong. I think this is someone hoaxing Fox News so they can exploit Fox News´ publishing of this and claim Fox News is a Fake New Site, or something along those lines.

Remember The China Air pilot who crashed in SFO? Wee Tu Lo. His co-pilot Sum Ting Wong.

Hoaxes are easy to pull on the news media. Just look at all the Russia shizzle.

Glad to hear others think this story doesn´t pass the smell test. I´ve worn contacts for 35 years (I´m a swimmer) and have no idea how one could place that many contacts in one eye without someone noticing. I have to get my eyes checked yearly to keep getting my prescription filled.

Children at a Christian preschool in Sweden are no longer allowed to say grace at mealtimes, “Amen”, or talk about the Bible, after a ruling by the Umeå municipality. Visiting the preschool for an inspection, supervisors from the district said the activities run contrary to the Education Act, which forbids educational content during school time from containing confessional elements, and states that children at must always have the choice of whether or not to participate.

A new report from a group led by Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman claims that Democratic staffer Seth Rich was likely killed by either “a hired killer or serial murderer.” The group is called the Profiling Project, and it is reportedly staffed with George Washington University graduate students who are studying forensic psychology.

But he may also face questions about the bombshell lawsuit filed Monday by a former U.S. intelligence contractor that accused the FBI and CIA of illegally spying on millions of Americans, including

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator.

After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose.
