According to foxsports.com.au, champion Australian boxer Anthony Mundine has lost vision in his left eye due to an infection. How did he get this infection?
“Mundine picked up the infection in New Zealand last week, apparently after cleaning a contact lens with his mouth.”
Now, I realise that boxers aren’t exactly the smartest dudes in the world, but surely, surely, common-sense tells you that the best way to clean a contact lens is not popping it in your mouth. We’ve all heard that the mouth is the most unhygienic part of the body, carrying more germs than the average toilet seat. It is not for cleaning things. Especially not things you then put in your eyes.
