Guy has a worm in his eye...

http://www.kcautv.com/Global/story.asp?S=13195004

A Cedar Rapids man could have permanent damage to his eyesight. It's all because of a creature invisible to the naked eye that wiggled its way into his body.

John Matthews loves to hunt turkeys and travel to places like Mexico. During one of those adventures, something crawled inside his body. When two dark spots appeared in his vision and his eyesight became a little hazy, he headed to the doctor.

It was then that doctors found a microscopic worm swimming around inside John's eye.

Doctors shot two rounds of laser blasts into his eye to kill the worm.

"When you hit it with the laser, it got very upset. As upset as a worm can get, I suppose," says Dr. James Folk with U of I Hospitals and Clinics.

"I saw something wiggling and I asked if the worm was wiggling. The doc said, 'yes.' I said, 'I can see it," says Matthews.

John must do computer exercises to strengthen his eye. His vision has improved, but may never return to normal.

There are only about fifteen known cases like this in the world.



The worm got upset? My god...

I mean: I, for one, welcome our new worm overlords.

Here's one worm that is always upset. Maybe they're related?

I dunno. You know who I think's lucky? The guy who didn't get a worm in his eye.
