Rupal Morjaria, a specialist trainee of ophthalmology, writes that the first clump found in the woman's eye during her scheduled cataract surgery contained 17 contact lenses stuck together.
According to Morjaria, after the lenses were removed, the patient said "her eyes felt a lot more comfortable".
"We were really surprised that the patient didn't notice it because it would cause quite a lot of irritation while it was sitting there", Morjaria told Optometry Today, adding that the team involved in treating the woman had decided to make the case public because it had not been known previously that it was possible to retain so many disposable lenses in the eye without showing any major symptoms. It was such a large mass.
With the discovery, the patient's cataract surgery was pushed back as she had a higher risk of contracting endophthalmitis. The woman had been using disposable contact lenses that last for a month and had been continuing this practice for the last 35 years. Apparently, the 67-year-old patient hadn't noticed.

"She was quite shocked". The woman did not report any symptoms in an assessment prior to surgery.

Morjaria warned that it's important to have regular check-ups for those wearing contact lenses.
Dr. Morjaria pointed out that people use lenses all day long and they don't monitor their deterioration.
