Four bees discovered living in a woman's eye, feeding on her tears

Doctors discover four live bees feeding on tears inside woman's eye

Hospital's head of ophthalmology Dr Hung Chi-ting said that he saw something odd in her eye at first and after carefully examining further under a microscope, he noticed that they were insects.

Hung pulled the sweat bees out of He's eye one at a time and under a microscope without damaging their bodies.

Having four bees in your eye sounds revolting, but Dr. Hong said the situation could have been much worse. "They were still intact and all alive", added the ophthalmology professor.

The woman had been visiting a relative's grave earlier that day.

"It was a very intense stinging pain and I was constantly shedding tears, there was a lot of secretion", He told reporters at a local news conference on Wednesday.

She described feeling something in her eye, but assumed it was dirt or sand, so she tried to flush out the particles with water.

Sweat bees are drawn to moisture and salt, which can be found in human perspiration and tears. "Tears wouldn't stop coming out of my eye", said the Taiwanese woman, who was identified only by her family name, He.

In addition to needing pollen and nectar like other bees, Shelomi said, sweat bees, which are dark-colored and metallic, will occasionally need salt to supplement their diet.

These little bees are known to live near graves and fallen trees, according to an ophthalmologist who treated her.

He has now been discharged and is expected to make a full recovery.

Medics had initially thought the patient was suffering from an eye infection when a little bit of further investigation found four bees living inside her eye. "If she did she could have induced the bees to produce venom... she could have gone blind".

"They are still alive, they've been sent as specimens to another organisation and will be studied".

"This is the first time in Taiwan we've seen something like this", the doctor said.
