This is what happened when a parasitic larva grows into a fully grown worm in the eyeball of a frog.
Believe it or not, a Florida man first discovered humans can also be affected by this infection.
- Drinking water containing the larva (pretty rare in the U.S.)
- Eating an animal infected with the parasite (looking at you, frog legs)
- Contact with bodily orifices (eyes, ears, open wounds, etc…)
The only effective way to remove one of these parasites is to have it surgically removed.
