This doctor invented a new game of ‘EYE STYE’ – after popping a spot right next a patient’s eyeball.
In the gruesome procedure, the physician takes a sharp needle and pops the abscess right on the edge of the lady’s eyelid.
He uses the syringe to twice break the skin of her lid before squeezing hard right next to her eye, releasing the spot and some blood.
But despite the pressure and having a needle right in front of her eyeball, the woman does not even flinch!
The eye-watering procedure was carried out by Dr Michael Lewis, MD at his family practice in Woodland Hills, California.
Michael said: “The nice lady came in with a painful swelling of the edge of her upper left eyelid.
“She was very brave and did not even flinch.
“She has a stye which is a clogged oil gland. It does not always need antibiotics but I gave her some due to the pain and tenderness. The treatment of any abscess is drainage.
“If the tissues are inflamed around the site, then antibiotics are recommended.
“As a family practice physician, we are taught to treat all ailments. I even used to deliver babies but I don’t do that anymore.
“Our scope of practice, one could say, is womb to tomb.
“I have always enjoyed performing procedures. It is one of my favourite things to do. I perform multiple procedures weekly from simple things like cleaning out ear wax and joint injections to removal of masses on the skin,
“Nothing bothers me too much as far as procedures go, however if the smell is bad it can be really tough.
“I left corporate medicine so that I can provide the type of medicine that people desire.
“I also wanted to return back to the principles that I went to medical school for in the first place – compassionate care and healing. It’s the way I think medicine should be.”
