Taiwan abuzz with tale of live bees feeding on woman's eye

During a recent press conference, the woman explained that she began to feel off, as if she had gotten dirt or sand in her left eye, as she was clearing the gravesite of weeds.

While the bees are commonplace, doctors stress it's extraordinarily rare for the insects to slide under someone's eyelid.

Reports from television network CTS say this may be the first case of sweat of its kind in recorded history, as doctors have found no similar cases in medical records.

"It was very painful", He told reporters. "Tears wouldn't stop coming out of my eye", said the Taiwanese woman, who was identified only by her family name, He.

She recovered 80% of her vision because she had refrained from rubbing her eyes throughout the ordeal.

Dr. Hung Chi-ting, head of Fooyin University Hospital's ophthalmology department, said in a press conference on April 4 that when he examined He, he "saw something that looked like insect legs" in her eye.

Doctors in Taiwan have found live bees inside a woman's eye, feeding on her tears. "I was scared to death". If she had, it could have worsened her inflamed cornea or potentially led to blindness, Apple Daily Taiwan and other media outlets reported.

Sweat bees are attracted to perspiration. "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 said.

If you thought multiple bees flying around you were bad, just imagine having them inside your eyelid.

The woman was diagnosed with cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection, and severe corneal erosion caused by the tiny insects. They are commonly found near graves and in mountains.

The bees were sweat bees or halictidae, small insects that, in addition to nectar and pollen, also feed off human sweat and tears.
