Woman In China Mistakes Super Glue For Eye Drops, Seals Eyelids Shut

Here’s a lesson in keeping your toiletries far away from your supply of super glue. A 20-year-old woman in China named Zhao Xing Nvzi, arrived at the Shenzhen Eye Hospital recently and told doctors she had accidentally super-glued her eyes closed when she confused the adhesive for her contact lens re-wetting drops. The hospital’s chief physician said the woman did not want her eyelashes to be cut off, so he instead spent more than an hour carefully separating them, as well as parting her eye lids. The patient got lucky, as her contact lenses prevented the adhesive from making direct contact with her eyes. (UPI)
