American doctor Ian Crozier was treated for Ebola in Atlanta last year and declared free of the virus in his blood. But he had no way of knowing it still lurked in his eye.
About two months after being released from the hospital, he experienced a piercing pain in his left eye, he told The New York Times. The pressure in his eye elevated while his vision decreased.
After repeated tests, doctors discovered the virus was still living in his eye.
“It felt almost personal that the virus could be in my eye without me knowing it,” he told the paper.
