A patient was noted to have a nematode on her conjunctival surface when evaluated for a foreign body sensation in her left eye for 1 month. After slitlamp examination, the nematode was removed and subsequently identified as an adult Thelazia callipaeda worm. The patient returned for cataract surgery 3 months later. During phacoemulsification, another nematode was noted in the surgical field and removed, with no nematodes subsequently detected over the next several years.
