Contact lenses can be hard to see. One aged patient had trouble locating theirs. None of us have ever seen this before,” says eye surgeon Rupal Morjaria, a trainee ophthalmologist at Solihull Hospital near Birmingham. “It was such a large mass. All the 17 contact lenses were stuck together. We were really surprised that the patient didn’t notice it because it would cause quite a lot of irritation while it was sitting there.”

They then found 10 more.

“She was quite shocked.,” adds Morjaria. “When she was seen two weeks after I removed the lenses she said her eyes felt a lot more comfortable.’
