LANTANA, Fla. — A Florida woman’s eye was glued shut after someone accidentally poured glue into her eye instead of eye drops, instantly gluing her eye shut.

Katherine Gaydos told WPBF a man was using a leaf blower and blew debris into her eye.

She asked the man to reach in her purse and get Visine, but the man accidentally grabbed glue for applying false fingernails and poured the chemical into her eye.

“As soon as I felt it burn, I closed my eye and screamed and called 911,” she told WPBF.

The glue immediately sealed her eye closed.

A doctor used lidocaine to force her eye open. She is scheduled for a procedure on Friday to get the glue scraped off her cornea.

Doctors told Gaydos she should not experience any permanent vision loss due to the accident.

    So we see that money is of greater value and higher importance than helping and saving human lives. Rock on doctors!

      what makes you say that. you said “we see” (indicating that something in this story proves your point) but from this story i have no reason to believe what you said was true.
