A lot of us have lost a contact lens. But you never expect to find it 28 years later.
A team of doctors in Britain performed surgery on a woman with a swollen eyelid and found the cause... a contact lens that had been in her eye for 28 years.
According to BMJ Case Reports, the 42-year-old woman suffered swelling just below her left eyebrow and the cause was thought to be a cyst that steadily grew over a six month period.
It was only when the doctors performed surgery that they realized the cyst contained a rigid gas permeable contact lens, which the woman said she had not worn in decades.
