Florida Woman Mistakes Super Glue For Eye Drops, Makes The Internet Cringe
Katherine Gaydos has single-handedly put Florida back in front of Ohio in the seemingly never-ending “dumbest citizens” race.
Poor Katherine got something in her eye while she was outside. She quickly asked someone to get her eye drops from her purse. That person, who I can only assume to be a complete dipshit, instead grabbed super glue and handed it to her.
Katherine, not realizing the fact that most eye drops don’t come in a tube or, ya know, gel form, went ahead and applied the super glue to her eye and instantly regretted it.
“As soon as I felt it in my eye I felt it burn and I closed my eye and screamed ‘Call 911,’” she told WPBF-TV in Florida.
The doctor was able to get her eyelid open and will be able to remove the glue soon. The doctor said that she should regain her eyesight.
So the next logical thing to do would be to consult a doctor who has seen many of these cases. Maybe so we can get an idea of how often this occurs or what to do in this situation. Where might we find a doctor that had to deal with these types of idiots?
Case Western Reserve Dr. Pankaj Gupta, a professor of ophthalmology, told ABC News that the very first thing to do is remain calm.
“The first thing I think everyone needs to know is don’t panic,” Gupta told ABC News. The eye cells will slough off and eventually loosen the grip of super glue, he explained.
“There is not a single thing that is permanent that will not slough off on its own,” he added. “In time it will go away.”
I can’t wait to see what Ohio comes back with.
