I could understand if a couple lenses somehow ended up in her eye but not 27! 

According to NBC25, The woman told doctors she had worn disposable contact lenses for 35 years and occasionally, she would go to remove the lenses -- and wouldn't be able to find them. Well, looks like they were right there in her eye the whole time...all 27 of them.

I don't wear contacts but I did once when I dressed up as Sub-Zero for Halloween one year. I had to put blue lenses in my eye and it was a horrible feeling. I can't imagine 27 of those suckers stacked up in there.
