real_headhoncho: Anybody got any eye bleach?
fusillade762: Link needs a NOT SAFE FOR LUNCH warning.
That Guy What Stole the Bacon: Well, I expected far worse than what was actually in TFA. Frankly, I was going to try making some snarky, image-filled "expected X, but got Y" post, but then I did an image search for "bugs eating eyes."Did not think that one through...
symptomoftheuniverse: This would suck if it was real. Luckily it's only the fail.
Poowaddins: I've worn contacts 24 hours a day 7 days a week for 3-4 months at a time with the same pair of contact lenses for years now. I've been wearing contacts for ~ 25 years now, same regimen.I do take them out every few days to give them a bit of a rinse and a clean with solution, and put allergy drops in my eyes, and I do put in new pairs after a few months time. But beyond that, I have perfectly healthy eyes. Even my ophthalmologist can't explain it, and pretty much said, "Whatever you're doing, keep it up, because I can't find a single thing wrong with how you wear your lenses."This Thai girl, she must have all sorts of hygiene problems to not have noticed her eyes were red, inflamed, in pain, you name it. FFS.

Ted_Crisp: Add this to the reasons that I got laser eye surgery./Less expensive than contacts over time//makes allergy season much more bearable
talkertopc: These days I don't even know if they make contacts for my condition, I only see properly without aid about three inches from my eyes, not nearer nor farther. I now wear bifocals
if_i_really_have_to: talkertopc: These days I don't even know if they make contacts for my condition, I only see properly without aid about three inches from my eyes, not nearer nor farther. I now wear bifocalsYes, they make highly gas-permeable disposable soft lenses for astigmatism. They still work on the weighted idea, but there's no black dot or anything (???). I find them perfectly comfortable.They also make bifocal contact lenses, would you believe it.They also have UVA/B protection in them now.Contact lenses are significantly more safe and comfortable than they were 30 years ago. If you want to try them out, most optometrists will give you a pair for free to wear for a week to see if they suit you before making you put down cash for a whole box.
Christian Bale: "take lenses out when swimming and washing"Washing what? They don't seriously mean when showering? Or do they mean, when washing the eyes? I don't get it."avoid wearing contacts for more than 8 hours a day"Are you kidding me? Who does that? Puts them in at 9am and removes them at 5 oclock? Might as well wear glasses.
Egalitarian: The secret, I think, is don't keep 'em in your eyes longer than you're supposed to, and wash yer hands thoroughly and use saline solution instead of tap water
Kevin72: symptomoftheuniverse: This would suck if it was real. Luckily it's only the fail.It is real. This story was one of the lead stories for George Noory's opening monolog on Coast to Coast.
Kevin72: One thing is suspicious. They say "an ameba". Wouldn't it take two amoebas to decimate two eyes?
Iczer: A Taiwanese what? Snowplow? Horse? Rutabaga?
Danger Avoid Death: Kevin72: One thing is suspicious. They say "an ameba". Wouldn't it take two amoebas to decimate two eyes?[lh6.googleusercontent.com image 506x380]Depends on the amoeba. The dreaded Mr. Bill Amoeba can attack both eyes at the same time. OH NO!
gweilo8888: It's the Daily Fail, so I'm going to go with "Whichever sounds the most made-up and overhyped".
