Woman Learns Eye Irritation Is Really BEES LIVING IN HER EYE!!!

April FrancisApr 12, 2019

Doctors in Taiwan have found four small sweat bees alive inside the eye of a woman.

Hung Chi-ting, the head of the hospital's ophthalmology department, told reporters that when he peered closely at He's left eye, he "saw something that looked like insect legs, so I pulled them out under a microscope slowly, and one at a time without damaging their bodies".

The woman, identified by the surname He, said she thinks the insects blew into her eye while visiting a relative's grave. They come from a large family of bees known as Halictidae, and are most commonly found in Northern America.

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

Tiny legs were seen wriggling in her eye socket after she went to Taiwan's Fooyin University Hospital believing she had an infection caused by dirt or sand.

He was discharged and is expected to make a full recovery, KRON-TV reported. "Tears wouldn't stop coming out of my eye", she said at a news conference last week.

Recently, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) chief Jim Bridenstine called India's ASAT test a "terrible thing". India is the fourth nation to have achieved the feat after US, Russia and China.

Dr Hung had first suspected inflammation of the cornea, but upon inspection under a microscope, saw the insects' wriggling legs.

We know it doesn't seem that way at first look, but Dr. Hong says Ms.

"She couldn't completely close her eyes", he told the BBC. Fortunately, Ho did not rub her eyes, as that might have prompted them to sting, causing her to suffer enormous damage, including blindness, said Hung.

"These bees don't usually attack people but they like drinking sweat, hence their name."
"I don't expect we'll ever see it again". "I was squatting down and pulling out weeds", she told reporters.

Thinking it was only dirt, she cleaned her eye out with water and did not rub her eyes much for the rest of the day.
