Abstract: 

Nowadays, parasitic zoonoses are of the main causes of human parasitic diseases worldwide and considered a major threat to social and economic development, especially in developing countries. The main agent is the zoonotic worms which affect the eye and may cause blindness and also severe socio-economic consequences in human societies. These worms include nematodes, cestodes, and trematodes that can be transferred by insects (dirofilariasis, Onchocerciasis, thelaziasis), through contaminated foods (sparganosis and Trichinellosis) or indirectly through contact with the environment (Ascaris, Fascioliasis, and Echinococcus). Adult and larval forms of worms affecting human eye may either attack the external tissues of the eye (for example, lacrimal glands, eyelids, and conjunctiva bag) or penetrate into the eyeball (retina and the anterior or posterior chamber of the eye) and cause various symptoms depending on the site they affect. In addition, they can cause disease through the immune response in the host.
