Any contact lens wearer will know they'll stop at nothing to retrieve it which is why a group of doctors in the United Kingdom were left stunned after discovering - wait for it - 17 stray lenses at the back of a woman's eye recently.

Further investigation by the doctors revealed a further 10 contact lenses behind then woman's eye. How?! Why?!

"None of us has ever seen this before", specialist trainee ophthalmologist, Rupal Morjaria, told Optometry Today.

'It was such a large mass.

Getty Images/iStockphoto Rupal Mojaria said people have become more lax about checkups because contact lenses are so easy to purchase online. "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", she said further. Upon closer inspection, she realized that she'd stumbled upon 17 contact lenses stuck together.

"She was quite shocked". She thought that the discomfort she's being feeling is just a part of old age.

However, one doctor is now urging contact lens-users to not get complacent about taking them out and replacing them.

As a result of the freakish discovery the woman had her operation postponed due to the risk of developing endopthalmitis, inflammation of the interior of the eye gets increased.

After the finding, her cataract operation was postponed.

However, the senior citizen brushed it off as she thought it was due to her dry eyes, and her old age. Morjaria noted that this was because medical professionals involved in the woman's case didn't believe at first that it was possible for a person to have so many contact lenses lodged in their eye without any reported symptoms.

Wearing contacts lenses for too long can cause corneal damage.

Do you wear disposable contact lenses?

The American Optometric Association website said improperly used contact lenses could cause corneal abrasions, corneal edema, corneal ulcers or eye infections, which all could led to medical or surgical treatment.
