Woman’s Lost Contact Lens Found In Her Eye...28 Years Later
Everyone loses a contact lens now and then, which is why one unnamed woman from the United Kingdom didn’t think anything of it when she lost one during a game of badminton. That is, until she went to the eye doctor almost three decades later complaining about her swollen eyelid.
Doctors found a “well-defined” cyst right above her eye. When they surgically removed the cyst and broke it open, they made a shocking discovery – a single hard contact lens. It turns out that the contact lens probably moved up into her eyelid when she got hit in the face during the badminton game, staying there for 28 years.
They’re still not sure how the contact lens only started causing problems so many years later, since there were no “elicited triggers” to start the sudden inflammation. The woman’s just glad her eyelid isn’t drooping and puffy anymore.

Squirrel Hunting Season Opens In Georgia This Week
Do you, or someone you know, hunt squirrels? Do you have any recipes that call for squirrel?
Squirrel season begins Wednesday in Georgia and the Department of Natural Resources is reminding people of the season’s guidelines.
A news release says the season runs Aug. 15 to Feb. 28, 2019, and that hunters can go after gray and fox squirrels.
Additionally, the maximum number of squirrels you can bag is 12 per day, per hunter.
The release says squirrel hunting is a good way to introduce someone to the sport.
“It also provides a great opportunity to take a young person or someone new to hunting with you on a fun, inexpensive and active outdoor adventure,” said chief of the Game Management Section, John Bowers.
Both species of squirrels can be found throughout the state, though the gray squirrel is the most common.
