So you know how we talked about losing your contacts on the mat and how uncomfortable that is? Even so, it’s still a fairly common occurrence- I’ve even left one somewhere on a mat at IBJJF’s Nationals last year…. This guy left his cornea on the mat.
His cornea like, nature’s contact lens. I’m horrified. And intrigued. And horrified.
Read all about it, and wish this poor guy a speedy recovery. Although he now has a legitimate reason to wear an eye patch, which I have to admit is pretty cool. I’m sure he would rather have the cornea rather than the eye patch, but you know.
