Doctors shocked to find bees living under woman's eyelid

Doctors shocked to find bees living under woman's eyelid

Ms He said she had been pulling out weeds while tending a relative's grave when she felt something fly into her eye.

In the "world's first" operation, the doctors removed the bees, who were feeding off the moisture and salt of her tears, from He's tear ducts and that it could have been much worse if the woman had rubbed her eyes.

A Taiwan woman suffering from a swollen eye went to a hospital where doctors found four minuscule bees living under her eyelid.

And if you thought "living off her tears" sounded like Evanescence lyrics, the weeding the woman was doing? Unexpectedly, after returning home, her left eye suddenly became inflamed and swollen like a "salted duck egg superman".

Dr Hung Chi-ting told a news conference that he discovered the bees under a microscope.

The diminutive insects, known as "sweat bees" due to their predilection for human perspiration, were miraculously pulled from Ms He's eyes alive.

The woman was diagnosed with cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection, and severe corneal erosion caused by the tiny insects.

Pictures of the bees in Ms He's eye were shown on Taiwanese TV, after she and Dr Hung appeared to talk about the odd discovery.

The woman had been visiting a relative's grave earlier that day.

"It was very painful", He told reporters. Horng looked closely at the woman's streaming eye and "was surprised to find a back leg with hair protruding from the eyelid". "I looked into the gap with a microscope and saw something black that looked like an insect leg". Four. Bees. In her eye.

"They are still alive, they've been sent as specimens to another organization and will be studied", he said.

"She was wearing contact lenses so she didn't dare to rub her eyes in case she broke the lens", he explained.

"This is the first time in Taiwan we've seen something like this", he said, according to the BBC, describing it as a "world first". "The bees will be fine", Shelomi stressed.
