    Mix-up causes woman to glue eye shut

    A Florida woman accidentally glued her eye shut.


    A Florida woman said she accidentally glued her eye shut after a friend mistook a tube of super glue for a bottle of eye drops.

    Katherine Gaydos told WPBF-TV that the ordeal unfolded after she got a piece of debris in her eye while using a leaf-blower.

    “Something blew into my eye,” she told the local station.

    “I screamed for someone else to get eye drops out of my purse, and they brought super glue and poured it in my eye...As soon as I felt it in my eye I felt it burn and I closed my eye and screamed ‘call 911.’"


    The single mother of two was being treated by a doctor but couldn't continue payment, because she’s unemployed without insurance.

    "He was talking about doing surgery to try and save my eye,” she said.

    “But now I don't know what to do-I don't have a job, no insurance or any money.”

    So, why dosn't the new station pony up for her treatment if they are so concerned?

    Future legal action will now require super glue to advise users ... 'keep container out of medicine cabinet'.

    When I smashed my head into a door when drunk, at the hospital they used glue instead of stitches. I was pleased as I thought it would hurt less than stitches,in fact it was really hot and burned. I can only imagine the pain of getting it in your eye.

    I woke up really groggy one morning and instead of putting saline on my contact lenses, I put the disinfecting solution on them before putting them in my eye. I've never felt a worse pain. I could only wonder how bad the super glue felt, as that has a lot worse chemicals in it and is not made for stuff you put in your eyes. :shocked:

    I once mistook super glue for hemorhoid ointment. YIKES! Talk about constipation.
