Horror moment doctor removes 20 wriggling WORMS from eye of patient who felt ‘foreign body’ squirming in head for months

THIS is the horrifying moment a doctor removes around 20 wriggling worms from a 60-year-old man’s eyes.

The operation was done after the man finally went to a doctor after feeling the sensation of a foreign body in his eyes for several months.

The procedure took place at the Suzhou Municipal Hospital in the city of Suzhou, in Jiangsu province, eastern China.

The patient, a Mr Wan, said that he first felt the sensation of a foreign body in his eyes some months ago.

But he initially put the condition down to fatigue, he didn't take it too seriously.

Over time, the sensation intensified and Mr Wan was recently taken to the Suzhou Municipal Hospital where Dr Xi Ting carried out a thorough examination.

The medical team subsequently removed 20 white slender nematodes, also known as roundworms, from his eyes.

They typically enter the body through the skin or the mouth and once inside the body, these can travel to other organs, including the eyes.

The worms act as parasites in the conjunctival sac and tear ducts of dogs, cats and other animals, and occasionally in the eyes of humans and rabbits.

The doctor reminded animal owners to be careful of pet hygiene as parasites such as nematodes can be transferred to people.

He also advised patients experiencing symptoms such as blurred vision or discomfort to seek medical attention.
