We present a case concerning a 48 year-old man, who had complaints about ocular pains and an unpleasant feeling, which had started two days before admission. It was as if there was “something moving in his left eye.” The examination showed an extremely motile white worm, which was wrapped in concentric circles around the limb in the subconjunctival space of the patient’s left eye. It was identified as the adult female form of Dirofilaria repens. The patient had a normal clinical finding, except eosinophilia. Ocular filariasis is as a possibility to think about, even when the cases are not in a typically endemic area and with no specific subjective complains.
