Granny mistakes superglue for eyedrops

A grandmother ended up in hospital when she confused her eye drops with superglue.

Terry Horder, 78, reached for the medicated drops in her fridge but got the glue instead.

Nurses used vegetable oil to try to remove the glue which fused Mrs Horder's eyelashes together and seeped under the lids.

Mrs Horder, from Wurtulla, Australia, said: "There was a pool of glue against the eyeball itself but lucky it couldn't dry because of the water on the eye.

"They soaked my eyes for around five minutes and then tried to prise the lashes apart, which wasn't pleasant. But about 10 minutes later I was good as new."
