Taiwan doctor finds four sweat bees living inside woman's eye

The next day, however, Ms He found her eye swollen and went to the hospital.

A Taiwanese woman lived out our worst fears this week when no less the four bees ended up in her eyes. Hung told the press conference that sweat bees commonly nest in the mountains and near graves which explained how they had come into contact with He.

He said she initially thought she had sand or dirt in her eyes but went to the hospital after the stinging pain didn't leave and her eyes grew increasingly watery.

But when the woman, identified by her surname He, received treatment at Fooyin University Hospital in Taiwan, doctors didn't find a bacterial infection. One by one, Professor Hung Chi-ting said he removed the insects, which were still alive, from her eye.

Hospital's head of ophthalmology Dr Hung Chi-ting said that he saw something odd in her eye at first and after carefully examining further under a microscope, he noticed that they were insects. They are not usually aggressive and only sting if touched. Fortunately, the woman recovered 80% of her vision after being hospitalised for five days.

Even though the case is probably the most unusual he's heard about in his time studying entomology, Shelomi emphasized that what happened at the gravesite in Taiwan was a fascinating but not worrisome "freak occurrence". "I don't expect we'll ever see it again".
