Has anyone who has had parasites in their eyes comment on how they've gotten rid of them?

Have you tried anti-parasitic medications?

I was thinking of trying Mepron, but blood flow to the eyes is a bit different, so I was wondering if that would be effective.  I will look into that again.

I'm not really sure how anti-parasitics work, especially when it involves the eyes but I recall watching one of those show on tv about a kid that had parasites in his eyes. I believe he used an anti-parasitic medications but perhaps you can ask your doctor or look it up online on how to go about doing it that would be more effective.

My son had dog worms in his eyes. Our dog later died of heartworm, but I don't remember if that was the particular one involved. They can't survive there, but they caused a scar on the macula, resulting in blindness in that eye. There was no treatment, nothing we could do. He gets along fine, just has to have a right-hand mirror on his car (standard these days).

They eye has a large blood supply, nice and warm, making it a place the worms like. An opthalmologist will prescribe the proper medicine.
