A woman pulled 14 WORMS out of her eye in the world's first case of a human contracting an eye infestation only ever seen before in cattle .

Abby Beckley had to endure weeks of tests and waiting while the little critters crawled across her eyeball and refused to leave her body.

She was 26 when she went to spend the summer working on a commercial salmon fishing boat in Craig, Alaska.

Two weeks into the trip she felt something under her eyelid.

She went to check it out and was horrified when she pulled out a tiny wriggling worm from the bottom of her eyelid.

"I looked at it, and it was moving," she said. "And then it died within about five seconds."
