Doctors find 4 bees hiding in a woman's swollen eye

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

A young Taiwanese woman received the shock of her life when she sought hospital treatment for a suspected eye infection and doctors extracted four live bees that had been feasting on her tear ducts.

The 29-year-old Taiwanese woman who was identified by just her surname, He, had been visiting the grave of a family member and removing weeds when she felt a sharp pain and thought the wind had blown dirt into her 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.

According to Business Insider, had He rubbed her eyes more excessively, it would have worsened the condition of her eye and potentially blinded her.

Sweat bees have short tongues, which come in handy for lapping up human sweat and has earned them their name.

The tiny bees - which were were pulled out intact and alive - flew into Ms He's eye as she cleaned around a relative's grave. They are not usually aggressive and sting only if touched, but they are attracted to human sweat, which they drink.

The miniscule insects, known as sweat bees, are 3 to 4 millimeters (0.12-0.16 inches) in length, according to CNN affiliate CTS. Literally eating her tears, no less.

Hung shows He's eye where the four bees were initially discovered, living under her eyelid.

"Her power of sight had decreased to under 10 per cent of normal eyesight", the doctor told reporters.

"She was wearing contact lenses so she didn't dare to rub her eyes in case she broke the lens", said Hong.

Having four bees in your eye sounds revolting, but Dr. Hong said the situation could have been much worse. "This is the first time in Taiwan we've seen something like this".
