I’m sorry. I know. It can’t be unseen. I’ve traumatized you. But: the more you know, right? By showing you this, I might have just save you from the horror of hairy eyeballs. From The Daily Mail: “A 19-year-old Iranian man could see an unusually hairy problem. A rare cyst on his right eyeball sprouted hairs – impairing his vision and causing him discomfort every time he blinked. The hairy eyeball was the result of a limbal dermoid – skin tissue that can sprout hair, cartilage, sweat glands and even teeth. Doctors had to surgically remove the tumor – which measured 5mm by 6mm – after it began to interfere with the patient’s daily life. The New England Journal of Medicine reported the bizarre medical anomaly after it was submitted by doctors at Tabriz University of Medical Sciences in Tabriz, Iran. ‘He did not have pain, but the mass caused vision defects, mild discomfort on blinking, and the intermittent sensation of the presence of a foreign body,’ the journal reported.”
