The patient had reported no symptoms about the missing lenses during pre-operative test and Morjaria and her team said they chose to make this case public because they'd previously believed it was not possible to retain such a large number of contact lenses in one's eye without having any symptoms or noticeable irritation.

This is quite understandable, and the best reminder we've ever heard to take out your lenses and give your eyes room to breathe.

"It was such a large mass", Morjaria said.

According to Solihull Hospital (U.K.) specialist trainee ophthalmologist Rupal Morjaria, there were another 10 individual lenses later found in the patient's eye, resulting in a total 27 contact lenses.

The patient's cataract surgery was postponed due to increased risk of infections, and she was treated with antibiotics.

She said the patient, who did not attend regular optometry appointments, was "shocked".

The 67-year-old patient told medics she was unaware of the accumulation and believed the discomfort she was feeling had to do to "her old age", Britain's Optometry Today reported.

The woman had been using disposable contact lenses that last for a month and had been continuing this practice for the last 35 years.

Luckily for the woman, she appears to have been relatively unharmed by the contact lenses and says her eyes feel a lot better now they are out. She explained, "If they are not appropriately monitored we see people with serious eye infections that can cause them to lose their sight".

Whether you're a casual contact lens wearer or never go without them, you'll know all too well the agony that accompanies the moment your lens decides to go walk about...in the back of your eye.

They were causing her discomfort, but the woman had thought it was caused by dry eye and old age, reported The Telegraph.

The ophthalmologist british took advantage of the media coverage of this unusual case to remind the importance of follow-up in people who wear contact lenses.

Contact lenses have made life easier but this news will surely shock you.
