Kentucky Man Gets Tick in His Eye After Leaving Job Site
Chris Prater was “scared a little bit” when he got the diagnosis.
You know to check your body for ticks after spending a long day in a woody area, but what if the critter isn’t on your skin but in your eye?
That’s what happened to Chris Prater, from Prestonsburg, Kentucky, who had to have a tick removed from his irritated eye.
Prater said his eye began bothering him after leaving work one day. He works for an electrical company and spent the day at a job site removing a tree from power lines.
He said he saw a small spot on his eye and tried to wash it out but eventually went to see a doctor when he wasn’t able to.
Prater said he was “scared a little bit” by the whole ordeal. Even though he said he uses bug repellent every day, “You can’t spray your eyes," he added, according to APTN.
