A Kentucky man went to see an optometrist when his eye became irritated — and the problem turned out to be a tick.

Chris Prater, who works for an electric company, had been cutting a tree from some power lines, WYMT-TV reported.

After leaving the job site, he had his employer’s safety manager take a look. His eye was flushed several times, but it didn’t get better.

So he went to see a local optometrist, who numbed the eye and removed the arachnid.

“Once he grabbed it and pulled it off, the tick made a, like a little popping sound when it came off of my eye,” Prater told WYMT.

Prater went home with antibiotics and steroid drops and is now recovering.
