It’s about it

  • She documented her painful story on Tiktok.

  • At the hospital, her eye could be opened with a metal instrument.

When Lyd from Florida tries to reach for the eye drops in the morning, he gets superglue instead. He lives up to his name and in no time blinds her left eye all together, leaving the young woman with no choice but to go to the hospital.

on Tiktok documents her painful story. Hospital staff tried various methods to open Lyda’s eye, including an ointment to loosen the glue, but to no avail. “They made me apply an ointment that dissolves the glue,” Lyd writes in the video overlay. “But that didn’t work, so the paramedics had to take other measures.” Next, an attempt was made to pull the glue from the eye, but it was only partially successful.

“It happens a lot more often than you think”

Tiktok followers react to the apparently not-so-unusual accident: “Ow, I felt the pain through the screen,” Tiktoker wrote. “Former optician here!” writes another. “It happens a lot more often than you think. Sometimes the only option is to cut the eyelashes.”
