Imagine going to the eye doctor because your upper eyelid is swollen and painful. The doctor tells you it’s a cyst and operates. Inside the blister, the surgeon finds a contact lens: a rigid gas-permeable one.

That’s what happened to a 42-year-old British woman, according to a report recently published in the journal BMJ Case Reports.
