Doctors removed more than 60 live worms by operating on the woman’s eyes. This happened in China.
According to the report of the British media Mirror, the authorities did not reveal the identity of the woman who underwent surgery. The woman’s eyes were itchy. Later, when the pain in the eye worsened, after rubbing the eye, he could see that a worm had come out. After that, the woman was admitted to the hospital in Kunming, China.
Later, the doctors were shocked after examining the woman’s eyes. They found live worms in the woman’s eyeballs and leaves. After surgery, more than 40 worms were removed from the woman’s right eye and more than 10 from the left eye. Doctors said that more than 60 live worms were removed from the woman’s eyes.
Guan, the doctor who led the surgery, said such cases are rare. Doctors believe that the woman was infected with roundworms of the Filariodia type. It is usually spread by flies.
However, the woman thinks that the worm entered her body from a dog or a cat. After the surgery, doctors advised the woman to undergo regular check-ups.
