Morjaria told Optometry Today, the online journal of the UK's Association of Optometrists, that the woman was unaware that she had the mass of lenses on her eye.

"When she was seen two weeks after I removed the lenses she said her eyes felt a lot more comfortable", Morjaria tells Optometry Today. The incident should also raise issues for optometrists, she said, noting that the mass of contact lenses hadn't triggered an obvious infection.

'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'.

Unfortunately for the pensioner her cataract operation had to be postponed following the surprising discovery.

The woman is wearing monthly lenses for over 35 years, says the doctor in a short report published in the medical journal BMJ.

PIB de China crece 6,9%, levemente sobre lo esperado
El Gobierno chino está apuntando a un crecimiento de alrededor del 6,5 por ciento en 2017, levemente menos que el 6,7 por ciento del año pasado, que fue la medición más baja en 26 años.

The case occurred in November a year ago but was reported in the British Medical Journal this month.

Contact lenses, when kept in the eyes for too long or placed without cleaning, are prone to infections and other conditions.

Ophthalmologist found in the eye of the British pensioner 27 lenses that she had forgotten to remove.

Prior to her complaints ahead of the planned cataract surgery, the patient did not have any known symptoms associated with the contact lenses.

"She was quite shocked". The patient complained of discomfort in her eye and simply blamed it on old age and dry eye.

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.

Both optometrists and ophthalmologists stressed the importance of having regular check-ups with professionals.

Morjaria reiterated that patients with contact lenses of any type should regularly visit eye doctors.

Dr. Morjaria wrote that this case highlights how important it is to monitor people who wear contact lenses on a regular basis.
