Meabh McHugh-Hill, 23, hates glasses, but probably not as much as she should now hate contacts. After keeping her lenses in for 10 hours (about two hours longer than recommended), part of her eye was ripped away went she attempted to remove them.

"I ran upstairs to take them out and stupidly, in a rush, I just pinched my eye first like I normally would do to get the contact out," she said, narrating her own personal Halloween horror story. "I should have moistened them first... my eye was so dry the contact had actually glued itself to my eyeball."

The result was a ripped cornea, a scar on her pupil, five days without exposure to light, so much pain, and the inability to ever wear contacts in that eye again.

At this point, isn't that good news?

Apparently not. "Meabh, who hates wearing glasses, would keep her lenses in for up to 12 hours at a time," writes the Mirror.

"My vision is okay now but my eye is still very sensitive," said the UK student, who admits "I was so, so lucky. I could have lost my sight."

But she hates glasses so much, she says "the biggest disappointment was being told that because of the corneal scarring I'm not now suitable for laser eye surgery."

Yeah, but at this point, isn't it hard not to see the safety of glasses through rose colored glasses? This woman's intense.
