Woman from Shandong, north-east China had problems with her eyes. Her left eye was itchy and there was also eye discharge. At first she thought that she had an infection and was not worried.
But then her son noticed that something is moving on her eyelid so she immediately went to see a doctor.
With the help of a microscope, the specialist examined her eyelid and saw something shocking. There were insects moving on her eyelid. Actually she had lice on her eyelashes.
They were feeding and even started to lay eggs.
The doctor also found 20 little worms below the white discharge in Mrs. Zhang’s eye.
They were white and looked like some kind of parasites like mites, but later it was proven that they were actually lice.
The nurse removed the lice with tweezers and then her eyes were sterilized.
This is not a common condition but it happens sometime.
Have you heard about a man who had tapeworms in his eyes?
There is a parasite known as cysticerosis and who lives in uncooked pork. This parasite can start growing in the human muscles, brain, eyeballs and digestive system.
It must be really creepy to find out that something is living inside you or inside your eyes!
