Taiwan Doctor Finds Bees Living In Woman's Eye

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

The doctor said the bees were successfully removed from the patient's eye.

Taiwanese doctors found four small sweat bees living inside a woman's eye who were surviving off of her tears, according to BBC.

Sweat bees got their name because they are drawn to the moisture and salt of human perspiration, which is also present in tears.

However, several hours later the 28-year-old visited a hospital in southern Taiwan when her eyes started to swell and cause her pain. The bees are also still alive, Hung told the BBC, and will now be studied. As the name implies, sweat bees are often attracted to perspiration and have been known to feed on human teardrops due to their high protein content.

He was found to be suffering from cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection, and keratitis, severe inflammation of the cornea, which was caused by the pesky bees. "That would have crushed the poisonous bees to blind her", It took Ms Ho three days to recover, Horng said. While mowing the grass around the tomb, there was a strong gust of wind and she felt some "foreign bodies enter my eyes". "I was squatting down and pulling out weeds". "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. "I'm sure the sweat bees got by the eye and got squished between the eye and eyelid".

"This is the first time in Taiwan we've seen something like this", the doctor said. "They were still intact and all alive", he said. Fortunately, Ho did not rub her eyes, as that might have prompted them to sting, causing her to suffer huge damage, including blindness, said Hung.

"She was wearing contact lenses so she didn't dare to rub her eyes in case she broke the lens", he explained. The film saw its antagonist lynched, slathered in honey, and stung to death - one of the few bee-related deaths in film (we can't forget Wicker Man) and the only one to result in a ghost this angry.
