We wish this wasn't true but unfortunately it did happen to a man in Kentucky.
Chris Prater had been working outside as an electrician and left the outdoor job site with an irritated eye. He noticed a spot in his eye and went to the doctor shortly after. It turns out it was a TICK IN THE MAN'S EYE!!
The optometrist yanked it out of Prater's eye with some tweezers. Excuse us while we go scream and hide in a corner now.
Always remember to use bug spray and now wear goggles when working outside.
