Woman Learns Eye Irritation Is Really BEES LIVING IN HER EYE!!!

According to Liberty Times, a 29-year-old woman surnamed Ho (何) went with her family last week to sweep their ancestors' tomb in Kaohsiung's Daliao District during Qingming Festival (清明節) or Tomb Sweeping Holiday.

"Tears wouldn't stop coming out of my eye", she said.

Four "sweat bees" that had been living in a Taiwanese woman's eye were removed by a doctor who described his surprise at finding a "leg with hair, protruding from the eyelid". Unexpectedly, after returning home, her left eye suddenly became inflamed and swollen like a "salted duck egg superman". The bees are also still alive, Hung told the BBC, and will now be studied.

Sweat bees, also known as halictidae, "nest near graves and in fallen trees, so it's easy to come across them while hiking in mountains", Hung explained.

The doctor said it was fortunate Ms He had not rubbed her eyes as it could have squashed and killed the bees, and this would likely have led to more serious injury and could have caused blindness.

Sweat bees got their name because they are drawn to the moisture and salt of human perspiration - both are found in tears.

Reputedly non-aggressive, on the rare occasions their sting is used, the discomfort is said to be mild.

Hung said that the bees were about 3mm in length. "I was squatting down and pulling out weeds".

The sweat bees in Ms He's eye. "I looked into the gap with a microscope and saw something black that looked like an insect leg", Dr Hong, an ophthalmology professor at the hospital told the BBC. "They were still intact and all alive", he said.

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

"Thankfully she came to the hospital early, otherwise I might have had to take her eyeball out to save her life". "This is the first time in Taiwan we've seen something like this". "The bees will be fine", Shelomi said. "I felt wind blowing into my face, then I felt something in my eye which I thought was sand or dirt".
