Caption: African eyeworm life cycle. Diagram showing the life cycle of parasitic nematode (roundworm) Loa loa, one of the causes of African eye worm. The parasite is transmitted to humans via the bite of the deer and mango flies (both Chrysops sp.). The parasite resides in subcutaneous tissue, causing inflammation. It can sometimes be seen migrating through the eye, hence the common name of the disease.
