Doctors in China have released graphic footage of them removing 11 live worms from a baby's eye, reports The Mirror.

 

According to reports, the five-month-old child, named only as Dong Dong, contracted a horrific roundworm infection from a neighbour's pet and had to have surgery.

The mother took the child to hospital after she noticed her baby was extremely uncomfortable, and spotted something in one of the eyes.
