No matter how tired you are, never ever forget to remove your contact lenses.
This is the crucial lesson that top comedian Vice Ganda learned, after being nearly blind because he forgot to remove his contact lenses before sleeping. He was rushed to the hospital yesterday morning, January 28.
The comedian related that he forgot to remove his contact lenses before heading to bed. So when he woke up, he felt a burning sensation in his eyes. He got alarmed and saw that the lenses already dried up inside. When he tried to remove it, the lenses got torn, so he immediately asked for medical professional help. He was rushed to St. Luke's Medical Center.
He told his story on It's Showtime, where he also thanked Dr. Gino Feliciano who attended to him while he was in the hospital.
