Woman’s Eyelid Had Contact Lens Inside That She ‘Lost’ 28 Years Ago

She had the cyst surgically removed, which is when the doctors discovered something unusual, a contact lens.

Of course, the woman couldn't immediately recall how the contact lens got there or how long it had been there. On examination the doctors could feel a small pea-sized lump under the skin of her eye lid.

In fact, once doctors had to remove a total of 27 soft contact lenses from the eyes of a British woman.

Doctors thought it was a cyst that had grown over a six-month period.
