  • Elephant gets contact lenses


    An elephant in Amsterdam's zoo has made history after being fitted with a jumbo-sized contact lens following an eye injury, a statement said Monday.

    "Win Thida is the first elephant in Europe with a contact lens," the Artis zoo said on its website.

    The 44-year-old Asian elephant accidently scratched its left cornea while playing and the eye was constantly watering. The procedure lasted about an hour, the statement said.

      Wait what!? How the hell can they tell if he can see better with or without the contact lense? Am I missing something here?

      Apparently it's more for protection than vision. (source)
