Doctors find tiny bees living in Taiwanese woman's eye

(WTNH) - A bizarre (and gross) discovery in Taiwan. Doctors found tiny bees living under a woman's eyelid called Sweat Bees.

They're known to live near graves and fallen trees.

The woman had been visiting a relative's grave about three hours earlier and thinks that's when the insects blew into her eye. They were living off her tears.

Doctors say if the woman waited much longer to come in she would have lost her vision, but she's expected to be okay.
