I pulled a living bug out of his eyes.

Bug in the eye


In 2017, a patient came to our eye center in the Rukum district of Nepal. What he told me was something else while what problem he had, was no match for what I found in his eyes. The man told me that his eyes bleed.
There are many eye problems where a patient complains of bleeding from eyes. When people have a serious case of pink eye (Conjunctivitis), they often complain of bleeding. The bleeding in conjunctivitis occurs as the inner parts of the eyelids develop a pseudomembrane. The membrane when erodes, the layer of the lid bleeds. The other few cases where a patient has a history of eye injury has a problem of bleeding from eyes.

The patient had eye surgery done recently. After I took the complete history, I had no clue why his eyes bleed. I saw no blood in his eyes while I was examining his eyes with Slit-Lamp (Machine used by eye doctors to see the eye through magnification). Suddenly I saw a horrific scene and was pretty shocked to see it. I saw a black thing moving in the margin of his upper eyelid. I did not understand that he had a living parasite in his eyes. I did not tell him he had a parasite in his eyes. I rather told him he had a piece of wood in the upper lid. It made me easier.  He could have responded differently if I would have told about the parasite. I removed the living parasite from his upper lid.

Later, I showed him the parasite and said it was a bug that was causing his eyes to bleed🤣. As he told, he did not understand that something was inside of his eyes for over 5 days. It was something that I never saw. Here is the video of me removing the eye parasite from his eye.
