If This Horror Story Doesn’t Motivate You To Change Your Contacts Every Night, Nothing Will
Personal hygiene is very important; not just so that others won’t be physically repulsed by you, but for your own health and well-being. Nowhere is that made more abundantly clear than in the case of poor Taiwanese student, Lian Kao.
Ya see, Lian left a pair of disposable contact lenses in her eyes for SIX MONTHS. For those of you who don’t know, disposable is defined as “intended to be used once, or until no longer useful, and then thrown away.” But Lian was basically like, “whatever, I’m busy and changing contacts is for losers,” and she kept those bad boys in her eyes for half a year, never taking them out to clean them or change them.
All that sounds fine, until you find out that Lian wasn’t the only person who enjoyed not having to change her contacts. It was also a boon for the MICROSCOPIC BUG THAT DEVOURED HER EYEBALLS AND LEFT HER BLIND!
Yes, when you don’t clean or change your contacts, bacteria can build up in there, and in the case of Lian, her eyeballs became a chill pad for a tiny single-cell amoeba that enjoyed dining on the eyes of undergraduate Asians.
Doctors were disgusted to find that when they removed the lenses, the surface of her eyes had literally been eaten away. Lian – what the hell are you doing with your life? If this is what’s going on in your eyes, I do NOT want to take a gander at what’s going on down below (in your vagina).
If you want to see what her eye looked like post-amoeba devouring, which why the hell would you want that, head over to the Daily Mail.
