A British woman went into the hospital to have surgery to remove a cyst from a swollen eyelid, but what surgeons actually found was eye-popping.
The swelling had gotten worse over about six months and doctors believed it was caused by a growing cyst that needed to be removed. But when they began to perform the operation, they discovered that it wasn't a cyst at all. It was actually a contact lens that had been tucked inside the patient's eyelid for decades.
The 42-year-old woman recalled some childhood trauma she'd suffered and believed the lens had fallen out, when in fact it had simply moved into her eyelid. The woman told doctors she hadn't worn contacts in 28 years. (UPI)
