Methods: Both cases were diagnosed based on slit lamp examination and anterior segment OCT and the parasite was found to be motile on exposure to external light.
Results: In the first case the subconjunctival parasite was found under the upper lid and was surgically removed on the same day while in the second case the parasite was found in the temporal interpalpebral area and possibly migrated posterior to the globe due to the delay in surgical removal and constant light stimulus.
Conclusion: Prompt immediate surgical removal of the parasite and patching of the eye in cases where the parasite is in light exposed areas is of importance in managing these cases.
