13cm live worm removed from eye

Posted on 12th July 2012

Don’t worry, there are no pictures in this post and the eye in question belongs to a man in Mumbai so no where round here.

It sounds like an old wives tales, but this one is actually true. 75 year old PK Krisnamurthy has an irritated and itchy eye for quite a while and visited his local doctor who referred him to an eye hospital where they found a worm swimming around in the jelly of his eye.

The doctor teased out a 13cm threadlike parasite and Mr Krisnamurthy seems to be back to normal.

Thankfully these things are very rare and even rarer in the UK so don’t worry, but come and see us if you’re concerned – we’re ready for anything
