They poured into the contact lenses, then disappeared




(Newser)

A terrible reminder of people who have contacts to take them out before they bathe or swim. Two patients in the UK are left blindly blinded to one eye after infection with a rare parasitic eye infection associated with water, reports Live Science. A 41-year-old woman describes two months of pain, blurred vision and light sensitivity in her left eye before doctors find a corneal defect, according to a report in . Eventually, the woman was diagnosed with keratitis Keratosis, a parasitic infection "most common in people wearing contact lenses," according to the CDC. It describes risk factors including improper handling and "swimming, using a hot tub or a shower for wearing lenses."
The woman eventually received partial corneal transplantation, which slightly improved vision. Nick Humphrey expects the same procedure on his right eye. "If I'm back, I will never have my contacts anymore," said Fox News's 29-year-old footballer. In 201

8 he collapsed with Acanthamoeba keratitis after he had regularly flooded with contact lenses. "I woke up, took out my lenses and went to the gym before I started working, then I would jump into the bathroom before heading for the office," he says. He works with the "Fight to See" charity to warn others that "this can happen for something as simple as bathing." (More about the risks here.)
