In October, 2010, a 38-year-old woman presented with creeping sensation in her right eye, but without any systemic or visual symptoms. Her medical history was notable only for an unknown insect flying into her right eye during farm work about 3 months earlier. On examination, a live worm was seen moving out from the nasal upper eyelid of the right eye above the conjunctiva (). This was further viewed with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (). When proxymetacaine eye-drops were administered, preparing the eye for surgical exploration, more than two worms were seen moving ().
