Ophthalmomyiasis is caused by presence of fly larvae Oestrus Ovis which has low incidence rate in the world, but most cases have been reported from developing countries. Recently the prevalence of ophthalmomyiasis has decreased in Iran. In spring 2011, a 40-year old rural woman with a good level of hygiene referred to Ophthalmology department of Rouhani Hospital in Babol. She had no history of eye diseases. After physical examination external ophthalmomyiasis was diagnosed. Seven larvae were found that were removed from cornea and cul-de-sac. Topical antibiotic and corticosteroid were prescribed for daily use. After two days the eye was asymptomatic.
