Oregon woman, doctors finds 14 worms in her eye

"But their presence in upstate NY suggests this geographic area is potentially suitable for spreading the eye worms that cause human infections in Europe and Asia". Human infections have been reported in parts of Asia as well as in Russia, Italy, and France.

"Her boyfriend's dad is a physician and he said, 'My son's girlfriend has worms in her eye". But now, Thelazia gulosa is the third.

The first human has been infected with eye worms that have only been seen before in cattle, and now they're spreading.

"We never expected to see this particular species in a human", Bradbury said.

The worm, also known as cattle eyeworm, is spread by flies that feed on tears.

She had been horseback riding and fishing in Gold Beach, Oregon, a coastal, cattle-farming area.

She first noticed her eyes felt irritated in summer 2016, and pulled what she thought was a bit of fluff from one of her eye.

"When I pulled out that worm", Beckley told the Oregonian.

Confused, she went to an eye doctor, who pulled out four more worms - but had no idea what it was.

When asked, to what extent is this worm vulnerable, the researchers said that if the worms stay in a person's eye for a prolonged time, then corneal scarring and permanent eyesight lose can happen. The translucent worms were less than a half-inch long.

CORRECTION: The headline in a previous version of this story incorrectly indicated doctors removed the worms from Beckley's eye.

Eye worms, known as Thelazia, are found in a variety of animals - including cats, dogs, and wild carnivores like foxes.

Richard Bradbury of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study discovered that two other types of Thelazia eye worm infections have been seen in people before. Adult female face flies typically cluster around the host's eyes, mouth, and muzzle, causing extreme annoyance.

"Having [other kinds of] worms in the eye is not completely out of the blue", Dr. Avnish Deobhakta, a retina surgeon at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, told Teen Vogue. And a local doctor had no suggestions. Fortunately, while Thelazia gulosa is not exactly a pleasant thing for anyone to find in their eye, Beckley's fears of disease or neurological damage proved unfounded. They searched for the condition online but found no connection between salmon worms and humans. If the worm died in the eye, it likely would have caused him to go blind. That lab sent two worms to CDC's parasitic diseases lab in Atlanta. Lucky (?) for her, that didn't happen.

"I am the first, the very first case of this type of type, this species of worm in a human eye", Beckley said.
