The eye of the beholder

A "blueish mass" of 17 contact lenses has been discovered in the eye of a British patient who was scheduled for cataract surgery. The 67-year-old was unaware that the contact lenses were missing, and later told surgeons that she thought her discomfort was due to dry eye and old age. A further 10 individual contact lenses were discovered in the woman's eye after further examination at Solihull Hospital. When the patient was seen two weeks after the lenses were removed, she said her eyes felt a lot more comfortable.

beholder/réf. à la citation de Margaret Hungerford "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" la beauté est dans l'œil du spectateur – blueish/bleuâtre - contact lens/lentille de contact - to be scheduled for/ici, devoir subir – surgery/intervention chirurgicale – further/supplémentaire
