The experts performed further examination and found additional ten contact lenses bound together in the woman's eye.

For the last 35 years, the patient had been wearing monthly contacts and hadn't been prudent with all her scheduled eye appointments.

The doctors reportedly made a decision to publish the case in order to make the public aware of the consequences of wearing disposable contact lenses.

Optometry Today has published a stomach-churning case reported by British trainee specialist ophthalmologist, Rupal Morjaria, of a 67-year-old female patient who had mislaid 27 - yes, 27! - disposable contact lenses in her own eye.

Surgeons found all 27 of the contact lenses were sticking to her cornea, which caused her to experience some discomfort.

"Because she had harbored these contact lenses in her eye for an unknown length of time, if we had operated she would have had a lot of bacteria" in her eye, Morjaria said.

Doctors in the United Kingdom have discovered 27 missing contact lenses in a woman's right eye.

According to the report, the woman's operation has been postponed as the risk of developing "endophthalmitis" - an inflammation of the interior of the eye - increased dramatically.

However, the freaky and eye popping story was just detailed in the British Medical Journal.

According to Rupal Morjaria, the ophthalmologist handling the case, it was unlike anything she has seen before.

Morjaria reiterated that patients with contact lenses of any type should regularly visit eye doctors. She claimed that she was unaware that the lenses were missing.

Anyone who wears contact lenses knows how uncomfortable it can be when they slip and get stuck under the eyelid.

Wearing your lenses for longer may cause your eyes to become uncomfortable, red and more prone to infection.

'She was very surprised when I told her on the day of initial surgery, but relieved that we found a reason for the foreign body sensations she had for years.

After doctors removed the lenses, unsurprisingly, the woman stated her eyes felt much better.
