A woman from Shandong who wished to stay anonymous wrote to us about her unusual eye problem. Her left eye was itchy all of the time and was leaking discharge, and she thought it was a simple eye infection. However, the truth turned out to be something far more horrible!
A few days after the problem started, her son saw something moving under her eyelids and she immediately went to the doctor. After examining her eyelids closer, the doctor noticed something shocking – there were lice moving in the woman’s eyelids which had even laid eggs! The doctor also found 20 worms under the discharge in the woman’s eye which were eventually found to be lice.
The doctor managed to remove the lice and clean the area well. He says that although uncommon, people with eyes in their eyelids occasionally come to his office. Besides lice, a man came to the doctor with a tapeworm in his eyes who got there after the man ate a piece of undercooked pork. This tapeworm can enter the muscles and brain, as well as the digestive system and eyeballs.
