Needle paracentesis technique for surgical extraction of eye worm from an anterior chamber of Marwari horse

Author(s): Supreetkumar Sagar, Pitlawar SS, Suryawanshi RV and SN Dhumare
Abstract:
A 5-year-old female Marwari horse was diagnosed with an eye condition. During the initial examination, the left eye was diagnosed with severe uveitis, which included hypopyon. In addition, a live parasite around 3 cm long was observed squirming in the left eye. A modified needle aspiration approach was used to extract the live eye worm from the eye's anterior chamber. Within one month, the patient was fully healed with no postoperative problems. This improved needle aspiration approach could be an efficient way to get rid of eye worms in horses.
