Is that a worm in your eye, or are you just happy to see me?

This was just reported on my local news, "A man complained to his doctor that he was seeing spots. But it was in fact a worm living inside his eye!! It was a stubborn one too. Doctors fired a lazer into his eye to try & kill the worm. They could see it moving trying to avoid the beam." This story even caught the attention of the cable channel "Animal Planet" where they interviewed the man for an upcoming episode of "Monster Inside Me". Have you ever heard of such a thing? How does a person who is alive have a worm living in their eye?? Gross!!
