The patient had chalked it up to old age and dry eye, Morjaria said.

Doctors rescheduled her surgery as a precaution. We were astounded to see that the patient had not felt, because it has cause a good number of irritations as it was in place.

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

"... This case highlights the importance of appropriate candidate selection and monitoring of contact lens wearers".

She added that she hopes this situation will serve as a lesson, according to Optometry Today, since so many people often avoid undergoing routine eye examinations now that contact lenses can easily be ordered online.

So, not only was her eye socket serving as a makeshift Mary Poppins bag, but she also had a, shall we say, sticky situation going on.

"It was such a large mass. All the 17 contact lenses were stuck together", she said. The woman, 67, told doctors she'd been wearing monthly disposable contact lenses for more than 35 years but didn't make regular optometrist appointments. I wear my dailies for an HOUR too long and my eyes start the rejection process: "goop, itching, hide-n-seek", tweeted a second.

If you are using contact lenses, you ought to be extra careful regarding the taking them off before you sleep.

However, her assessment before the operation apparently showed no signs of any missing contact lenses (how is that even possible?!). Are you careful with hygiene and removal? It may help to apply some sterile saline or artificial tears to help float the contact lens out from under the eyelid. This is quite understandable, and the best reminder we've ever heard to take out your lenses and give your eyes room to breathe.

The last sentence is the critical one. As this freakish case study shows, don't just leave it in there.
