Doctors in Taiwan have removed four bees from a patients eye. The 29-year-old patient went to Fooyin University Hospital last month because of severe pain in that eye. Doctors discovered the tiny bees feeding off the moisture in her tear ducts, according to Business Insider Singapore.

“Under the microscope, I slowly pulled them out, one after another,” ophthalmologist Dr. Hung Chi-ting said at a press conference last week.

The bees that Hung removed were alive. They are colloquially known as sweat bees because they feed on sweat and tears from humans and animals, but they rarely sting. Hung said the patient’s contact lenses may have saved her vision.

“She was wearing contact lenses so she didn’t dare to rub her eyes in case she broke the lens,” he told the BBC. “If she did, she could have induced the bees to produce venom. … She could have gone blind

Those bees have great taste. I also drink the sweet and delicious tears of my enemies instead of orange juice for breakfast.
