A woman in Taiwan was complaining about a swollen eye and went to the doctor to find out some very horrifying news. She had four bees living under her eyelid and feeding off her tears.
An eye doctor noticed what appeared to be insect legs in the woman's eye and, upon further examination, saw four small sweat bees living in her eye. The woman believes that the bees entered her eye while she was visiting a relative's grave. Apparently, sweat bees nest near graves.
The bees were carefully removed from the woman's eye and she was treated for an eye infection. She's expected to make a full recovery. (New York Times)
