Ms He, a 28-year-old Taiwanese woman, had a gust of wind blew into her eyes while pulling out weeds around her relative's graves. She assumed it was dirt that flew into her eyes but hours later, her eyes were swelling and in severe pain, leading her to seek medical attention at the Fooyin University Hospital.
Dr Hong Chi Ting, an ophthalmology professor, handled Ms He's case and noticed she couldn't completely close her eyes. Dr Hong told BBC that he looked into the gap with a microscope and saw something black that looked like an insect leg.
"I grabbed the leg and very slowly took one out, then I saw another one and another and another. They were still intact and all alive" said Dr Hong
