Doctors in China have pulled 20 lice from the eye of a woman who complained of a severe itch.
The woman identified as Zhang of Shandong, was shocked to learn that 20 lice were living inside of her eye while she was recovering from a stroke in a hospital.
At first, Zhang thought that the itching was simply the result of her recovery and when her eye did not get any better, she thought that it was an infection.
She then went to Dr. Bao Guisheng, who checked her eye with a microscope.
The Doctor first thought that they were parasitic insects like mites until he looked through a microscope and saw that they were lice.
The lice which were up to 20 were removed individually using a small pair of tweezers.
