All Caught on Tape
Peruvian doctors posted a video of them removing (what looks like) some sort of giant larva from a boy’s eye cavity. The video is particularly interesting because instead of pulling the bug out, surgeons used basil leaves to draw out the massive grub. Perhaps this is standard practice in Peru.
The 17 year old boy took the operation like a champion, you’ll be really impressed at how well he handles what seems like a lot of pain.

The Doctors’ Struggle
The video begins with multiple glove-covered hands feeling about the young boy’s face and eye, which is obviously very irritated.
Does this work?
After locating the bug, which had been squirming inside the boy’s eye for days, they attempted to lure the grub out with a little fresh basil. And, yes, having basil in the surgery room is totally normal at The National Children’s Hospital in Lima, Peru.
Feisty Little Bug
With a bit of a struggle, the doctors remove some sort of giant larva from the boy’s tear duct.
“Here we are,” says the doctor, in the most nonchalant way possible. (At least, I think that’s what he said. My Spanish is a bit rusty.) It was kind of like he just pulled a fork out of his dishwasher pipe.
