From there, he said they're eaten by the flies, which in turn carry them to other cows; or, in Buckley's singular case, a human. "Now, we have to add Thelazia gulosa, a third one to the list", he added. There have only been 10 other cases of eye worm infections in the United States, but they have not involved the cattle eyeworm that infected Beckley.
That worm is found throughout the northern US and southern Canada, but until now was never found to affect humans.
Scientists said the disease is spread by "face flies" that feed on the tears that lubricate the eyeball. Beckley may have been infected when she worked on a cattle ranch in Oregon. I just pulled a worm out of my eye!' I looked at it, and it was moving. "Dr. Bonura was so willing to just talk with me and was really empathetic to what I was going through as the person who had this thing in her eye".
Abby was 26 at the time and the worms were all less than half an inch (1.27 cm) long. They did not give her anti-parasitic medicine because they were anxious that a dead worm might remain in her eye.
Previous cases of similar eye worm infections have been found predominantly in Europe and Asia and in rural communities with close proximity to animals and with poor living standards, the researchers told the New York Post. In both cases, it's typically children and the elderly that are infected as they have a harder time keeping flies out of their eyes.
Visits to the doctor and a local ophthalmologist also proved fruitless.

"I finally couldn't take it any [more]", she says.
"I stayed in contact with her, and we were able to tell her this was very localised, that it was not systemic", the physician said. "They had to remove them as they became present and visible", Bradbury said.
Although it's not known exactly where Beckley became infected with Thelazia gulosa (she has no recollection of a fly landing on her eye), Bradbury and his colleagues believe it may have been while she was horseback riding in rural south OR, an area with a lot of cattle.
This is already the 11th case of eye worm infection to be reported in North America but it made history for being the first to result from a new species that has never affected humans. Maybe a common but harmless salmon worm had fallen into her eye. That larvae then need to hop back on board a face fly to complete its complicated life cycle.
If left in the eye the parasites can migrate across the surface of the eye and cause corneal scarring and even blindness, the report said. After a couple of days of scratching and more itching, the woman pulled out something that looked like a small, white string, only to find out later that it actually was a tiny worm.
