Over a period, since she was not sure of the foreign object to be a worm, she ignored the condition and had pulled out about six more of the tiny worms over the next few days. She decided to visit the doctor only when it got painful, and the discovery of the worms was becoming a standard issue.

The Doctors Examined Her Condition

It was diagnosed that she had worms in her eye and these worms were Thelazia gulosa, which is a parasite that is typically found in cow eyeballs.

The doctors revealed that all the worms could not be pulled out in a single shot as they had to wait until they showed up and were visible before pulling them out. The worms that were pulled out were less than half-inch long in size.
