10 Apr 4 bees found inside a woman’s eye… alive… AND INTACT!!!
You read that correctly!
A woman in Taiwan got the shock of he life when she found a group of bees living inside her eye AND WERE FEEDING OFF OF HER TEARS!!!!
So, how did this happen? The 28 year old woman, Ms. He, thought dirt had landed in her eye while she was getting rid of the weeds around her families graves. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you see this) her eyes started to swell and cause her pain and decided to pay the doctor a visit.
Here is what Dr. Hong Chi Ting said after being shocked over what he found:
“She couldn’t completely close her eyes… I looked into the gap with a microscope and saw something black that looked like an insect leg. I grabbed the leg and very slowly took one out, then I saw another one, and another and another. They were still intact and all alive.”
The little insects are known as sweat bees because they land on people so they can drink beads of perspiration!
Was her eyesight in jeopardy… YES!
More from the doctor:
She was wearing contact lenses so she didn’t dare to rub her eyes in case she broke the lens. If she did she could have induced the bees to produce venom… she could have gone blind.”
So… what about the bees? The bees are still very much alive but have been sent to another organization so they can be studied.
