Doctors Discover Four Bees Living Under Woman's Eye, Feeding On Her Tears

A Taiwanese woman who went to the hospital complaining of a swollen eye was stunned to learn the creepy-crawly cause of her illness.

The doctors suggested that He may have come into contact with the sweat bees when she was pulling out weeds near a relative's grave. However, it later began to swell up and she felt a sharp stinging pain underneath her eyelid.

She went to Fooyin University Hospital in her native Taiwan, where medics managed to remove the sweat bees in a "world first" procedure.

The insects that were removed from the Taiwanese woman's eye, known as sweat bees, are minuscule in size and are said to live near graves and fallen trees, according to the ophthalmologist who treated her.

A doctor in Taiwan pulled four small bees out of a 28-year-old woman's eye, shocked that they were living there. If she had, it could have worsened her inflamed cornea or potentially led to blindness, Apple Daily Taiwan and other media outlets reported.

As you would probably do, she assumed it was dirt or dust and went home hoping it would work itself out. "I looked into the gap with a microscope and saw something black that looked like an insect leg".

"She couldn't have asked for a better bee to sting her in her eye", Shelomi said.

According to pest control company Terminix, sweat bees are tiny creatures, typically ranging from 0.125 to 0.5 inches in length. They most often nest in the ground.

The insects are known as sweat bees because they land on people so they can drink beads of perspiration. "Tears wouldn't stop coming out of my eye", she said. "If she did she could have induced the bees to produce venom... she could have gone blind".

"Thankfully she came to the hospital early, otherwise I might have had to take her eyeball out to save her life", Hung told reporters. Fortunately, the woman recovered 80% of her vision after being hospitalised for five days.
