In what is believed to be a "world first", doctors at Taiwan's Fooyin University Hospital described in a press conference how they had then spotted the small insects crawling around her eye socket during an examination. Though she washed her eye with water, presuming it to be soil, later the eye began to swell up and she started to feel pain under her eyelid.

After three hours of agony, He visited the hospital, where doctors determined she was suffering from cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection, and severe corneal erosion caused by the sweat bees.

Dr. Hung Chi-ting, head of Fooyin University Hospital's ophthalmology department, said in a press conference on April 4 that when he examined He, he "saw something that looked like insect legs" in her eye. They are not usually aggressive and sting only if touched. After being hospitalised for five days, she was discharged and is expected to make a full recovery.

"She was wearing contact lenses so she didn't dare to rub her eyes in case she broke the lens", the doctor said.

Trump orders firing of US Secret Service chief
Ms Sanders said Mr Alles had done "a great job at the agency over the last two years" and Mr Trump was thankful for his service. Her remarks confirmed earlier reports by U.S. media, but Sanders did not elaborate on the circumstances of his departure.

All four bees were reportedly removed alive from He's eyes, and He appears fully recovered, Asia One reported.

"Tears wouldn't stop coming out of my eye", she said.

It's reported He was tending to a family member's grave, pulling out some weeds when she felt something go into her eye. "If she did she could have induced the bees to produce venom... she could have gone blind".

Halictidae or "sweat bees" are found all over the world.

If you thought multiple bees flying around you were bad, just imagine having them inside your eyelid. Hung said that sweat bees commonly live in the mountains or near graves, which explained how they flew into the woman's eye. "I don't expect we'll ever see it again".
