The 29-year-old woman had no idea why her eye was swollen shut. She was in unbearable pain and could not stop tearing up. The Taiwanese woman said she was confused about why an issue she thought was an infection kept getting worse, CTS News reported.
But when the woman, identified by her surname He, received treatment at Fooyin University Hospital in Taiwan, doctors didnt find a bacterial infection. While looking at Hes eyes through a microscope, Hung Chi-ting, the hospitals head of ophthalmology, witnessed something he hadnt seen before.
Insect legs were wiggling from one of her eye sockets.
He yanked out a small bee, known as Halictidae, or a sweat bee. And it was alive.
The doctor wasnt done. Soon he extracted a second sweat bee. And a third.
And, finally, a fourth bee was pulled from the womans eyelid.
Craving salt, the bees had been feeding off Hes tears, the doctor said at a news conference last week, later describing the odd medical diagnosis as a world first. The insects had made a new home under Hes eyelid that is, until they were all removed alive.

I’m really surprised that this is so unusual. The bees weren’t inside of her eye but under the eyelid and between the eye and socket.
Shouldn't it be:
While looking at His eyes through a microscope? LOL!
I’m surprised by it. How would a bee get under her eyelid? have to happen when somehow she didn’t see it or notice it happening. Not once but 4 times.
I wonder how long it will be before some “expert” blames this on Global Warming.
Give it a few days. :D
Well, You know what they say, right? “Beauty is in the Eye of the BeeHolder”
Haha. Good one. :D
I actually have occasional nightmares about insects. This isn’t helping.
But He’s a she. And for once no one is accusing He of being confused about her gender. :)
'Oh, they're there, all right,' Orr had assured him about the flies in Appleby's eyes after Yossarian's fist fight with Appleby in the officers' club, 'although he probably doesn't even know it. That's why he can't see things as they really are.'
'How come he doesn't know it?' inquired Yossarian. 'Because he's got flies in his eyes,' Orr explained with exaggerated patience. 'How can he see he's got flies in his eyes if he's got flies in his eyes?'
Maybe just blink right when the bee is landing on or near the eye. Most of the time the bee will be blinked away - but every once in a while it will be caught.
She had the unique ability of seeing things BeeFore everyone else
You are using way too much logic for this thread :)
The article says He is the patient’s surname.
Well, what sexes did the bees self-identify as?
If two were homo, the doctor was judgmental and destroyed a sexual coupling out of homophobia.
Agreed: Four bees dont want to be lodged in your eye socket any more than you do.
Shenanigans. Torture or traditional medicine quackery was afoot, IMO.
If anyone wants to see a nice big long worm being removed from a human eye you’re in luck!
