Panoorin: Doktor pinatiling gising ang batang babae sa isang linggo matapos sinimulang kainin ang kanyang eyeball ng contact lens parasite!
Contact lenses are very helpful, because they allow those who use it to see clearly even without eye glasses or for cosmetic reasons. However, one has to be extremely careful in cleaning and handling contact lenses, because there are cases wherein it might cause heavy damage! This is what happened to 18-year-old Jessica Greaney, an English college freshman who almost got blind after a parasite started eating her eyeball, all because of a contaminated lens.
At first, Jessica Greaney thought she only had a minor eye infection when her eyelid kept drooping and her eye sore.
When she went to the hospital, doctors initially said it was an ulcer. But by the end of the week, even with medication, it continued to worsen!
To their horror it was a parasite called Acanthamoeba Keratitis, thriving in her eye!
Jessica underwent a torturous treatment to kill the parasite and to stop it from continuously eating its way to her eyeball.
Good thing that the treatment worked and Jessica was discharged from the hospital eventually with her healed eye.
What is Acanthameoba and how did she get it?
