WARNING: Not for the squeamish 

This is one of most disturbing things I’ve ever seen.

It was reported that a 17-year-old boy from Peru arrived at the National Children’s hospital in Lima with a very swollen left eye.

 Apparently, after performing an MRI, doctors discovered that a worm had been living in the boy’s eye for about a month, according to NDTV Television.

Watch as doctors use basil to lure the slimy maggot out then pull the rest out of the kid’s eye with a pair of tweezers, and try not to gag.

After removing the one-inch long vermin doctors put it in a metal pan and ooh and ah over the wiggling creature.
