Elephant Gets A Giant Contact Lens

An elephant at an Amsterdam zoo was playing one day when the 44-year-old pachyderm scratched its left cornea.

The poor Asian elephant's eye was left constantly watering.

So they did what was a first in Europe, and gave the elephant a contact lens.

The zoo's website said:

"Win Thida is the first elephant in Europe with a contact lens."

The procedure to put in the contact took about an hour.

Hopefully the elephant will be much more comfortable now while it heals.

We love happy endings.
