Doctors baffled as 11-year-old girl has 60 ants removed from her eyes (photos)

Despite the medication, nearly 5-6 ants have been coming out of her eyes daily.

An 11-year-old girl recently had as many as 60 ants removed from her eyes after complaining for a while of severe eye pain.

The schoolgirl, who resides in an Indian village, baffled doctors with the strange phenomenon. However, one local doctor in India apparently thinks the ants had entered through the girl’s ears while she slept.

The 11-year-old Indian girl named Ashwini is said to have complained for days about having “something in her eyes.” The family, who lives in a village in Belthangady, India, called the Nellingeri village, thought that an ant had just landed in Ashwini’s eye as she slept.

Eyelids

According to the Daily Mail, Ashwini’s parents had first found just one ant “below her eyelid.”

When Ashwini continued to complain about the discomfort, her parents sought out the help of a local doctor in southern India.

While at the local hospital, the doctor was said to have removed 60 dead ants from Ashwini’s eyes and said that “the ants had probably entered” through her ears.

Dead ants

The doctor also prescribed eye drops for Ashwini to aid in the healing of the irritation and inflammation that was a result of having the dead ants in her eyes for so long.

The 60 dead ants were apparently all removed from Ashwini’s eyes within 10 days.
