"I felt one squiggle across my eye, and I told the doctors, 'You need to look right now!' I'll never forget the expression on their faces as they saw it move across my eye". At times, she said, they would go under the eyelid or behind the eye and for a time would no longer be visible.
Eye worms infections are very common in cattle, cats, dogs, sheep, pigs, foxes, and wolves. According to Engelhaupt, the worm larvae crawl from the flies into the eyes of the animals they're feeding on, where they transform into adults and produce larvae.

"It was shocking when it happened, and it's just fascinating now", she told the Tribune.
