Abstract
A 2 years old female Thoroughbred horse was presented with an ocular disorder. In initial eye examination, the left eye was diagnosed with severe uveitis including hypopyon. Additionally, a live parasite about 3 cm in length was clearly seen wriggling in the left eye. A modified needle aspiration technique was performed to extract the live eye worm from the anterior chamber of the eye. The patient was recovered without any post-operative complications within 1 month. This modified needle aspiration technique could be an effective procedure for eliminating eye worms in horses. © Medwell Journals, 2014.
