Physical Removal of Eye Worm in Chickens
If you have already tried eye worm removers like Vet Rx and the worm in your chickens eye is still there you may need to have the eye worm removed. Some people do this themselves as you will see in this eye worm removal from a rooster's eye video.
Physical removal of the eye worms by a vet may be needed if the birds have been infested for an extended period of time. This minor removal of the eye worm can be accomplished using a local anaesthetic. However, treatment with Vet RX will give the bird immediate relief and will kill the eyeworm. It is possible to physically remove the eye worms yourself without harming your chicken though we have never attempted this procedure at Chicken Heaven On Earth. (See Eye Worm Removal Video)

Easy Way to Get Rid of Eye Worm-Motherhen's Tip of The Day
"I have used many eyeworm treatments in the past. Vet Rx worked in the early stages of eyeworm but did little to help in more advanced stages of eye worm in chickens. In a desparate attempt to save my hen without going to a vet because there are no vets in my area that will perform eye worm surgery on my chicken, I pressed gently on the left and right side of the outside of the eye, then put tried a tiny sprinkle of Food grade DE on the inside of the eye lid of my hen's eye. I did this every other day for three days. Each day I could see noticiable improvement and within a week the eyeworm was gone"--Motherhen
