Sixty Insects Pulled From 11-Year-Old’s Inflamed Sockets
Doctors have been left baffled after finding ants in the eyes of an 11-year-old girl after she complained of severe pain and inflammation in her eyes.
Ashwini, of Nellingeri village, in Belthangady, India, told her parents that she felt something in her eyes, and after looking they found an ant below her eyelid.
At that point, the parents thought nothing of it as they believed the insect had landed in their daughter’s eye during her sleep.
But when the problem continued they consulted a doctor at the local hospital and were informed that the ants had probably entered through the girl’s ears.
Eye drops were prescribed to help the irritation subside.
Yet despite the medication, nearly 5-6 ants have been coming out of her eyes daily.
As many as 60 dead ants have so far come out of her eyes in the last 10 days.
On Monday, Ashwini was taken to an eye hospital at Moodabidri by her school teachers.
However the doctors, without seeing the phenomenon for themselves, have reportedly said that they can’t make any conclusions.
