Eyes are some of the most sensitive parts of the body, and even the slightest touch can irritate them. If you've never experienced the pain of getting an eyelash all up in there, consider yourself lucky -- and if you have, you'll know exactly how terrible this guy must have felt.
He got to experience that pain every minute of every day, because he actually had hair growing in his eye.
This 19 year-old man came into a clinic with a mass on his right eye. He said that the mass had been there since birth, but had increased dramatically in size over the years.
When doctors took a closer look, they noticed that there were hairs growing from the mass.
The diagnosis was a limbal dermoid -- a congenital tumor in the eye.
It didn't cause him any pain, but it felt annoying when he blinked, and it affected his vision.
The young man underwent surgery and had the tumor removed. Sadly, his sight will never fully recover because the mass caused severe corneal scarring.
