Glass in man's eye for 6 years

A shard of glassA Chinese man lived with a large shard of glass hidden under his right eye for six years. Xiao Zhu, 22, had the eye injured by a beer bottle during a fight six years ago in Jinjiang city.

"I had an operation right after the injury to fix the tear duct and the operation was successful," he said. "The wound sealed perfectly but the only problem was I always had tears running down which I thought was just a consequence of the operation."

But one month ago Xiao Zhu's right eye became more painful. Check-ups in different hospitals found nothing abnormal.

Finally surgeons at Dongnan Eye Hospital in Fuzhou city operated and found the shard of glass 6cms deep.

Xiao Zhu will keep the 3.5 cm long shard as a souvenir after he checks out of the hospital.
