A Logan woman who was tasered by police has lost her eye according to her family, but the hospital has refused to confirm the extent of her injuries.

Police have launched an investigation after a Logan woman was tasered in the eye on Thursday.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Steve Hollands says the officer who deployed the stun gun is a very experienced senior constable.

‘‘He’s also a qualified Taser instructor,’’ he said.

Officers were called to a house in Jacaranda Street, Woodridge about 1.15pm after reports a 36-year-old woman was acting aggressively.

A police spokeswoman said the woman became aggressive towards officers, one of whom then used her stun gun.
