Hope you can still eat after seeing this image of maggots in this woman’s eye

According to a report in a Canadian medical
journal, a woman who was sick and was being
treated in a Canadian hospital had 120 maggots
removed from her eyes and nose after fly laid
eggs in her eyes and nose..
"During the period, an adult fly (a green blow
fly or a green bottle fly) was seen in the
intensive care unit. The patient was in a
windowless private room that had an open
door. The intensive care unit had no windows
to the outdoors; thus, it was assumed that
the fly had entered the intensive care unit
from another part of the hospital. The fly must
have left the eggs in her nose and eyelid."
Doctors removed 120 maggots from her eyes and
nose. This happened a long time ago - in 2007 -
but the images were recently released. If you have
the stomach to look at it, then continue...
