Specialist trainee ophthalmologist Rupal Morjaria first found 17 lenses when the 67-year-old woman was being examined prior to a cataract operation. Looking further, surgeons have found 10 additional lenses hidden in the eye.
"None of us has ever seen this before", Morjaria said.
"It was such a large mass", Morjaria said.
Surgeons found 27 contact lenses lodged in a woman's eye.
In a weird incident, an eye specialist in the United Kingdom found 27 contact lenses stuck in the eye of a woman, media reports said.
She wanted a simple cataract removal surgery but as she visited the doctor, she received the shock of her life. She had been wearing monthly disposable lenses for 35 years but had neither reported any problems nor had regular optometrist appointments. The "blueish mass" was written off by the patient as simple discomfort caused by dry eyes or old age, The Bellingham Herald reports.

If you are using contact lenses, you ought to be extra careful regarding the taking them off before you sleep.
Last November 2016, a woman in the United Kingdom and her doctors were both surprised when they discovered she had 27 contact lenses in a single eye, according to Optometry Today.
But she had cataracts, so last November, doctors were injecting anesthesia into her eyes for surgery when they paused, surprised by the freaky discovery.
Luckily for the woman, she appears to have been relatively unharmed by the contact lenses and says her eyes feel a lot better now they are out. She didn't report symptoms that could be linked to the lost lenses.
The UK's Association of Optometrists offers these quick tips for avoiding infection when wearing contact lenses. Clinicians that were involved couldn't believe that the women had so many lenses lost in her eyes.
Morjaria hopes that contact lens wearers who see the story will take a little more caution. Contact lenses have also been reported to be the reason behind infections and sometimes the cause behind people losing their eyesight.
