Zoo fits elephant with contact lens

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.
