Demodex infestation of the eyelashes is a common disorder in ophthalmology. Slit lamp examination do not allow a very specific diagnosis. In vivo confocal microscope (HRT III) allows us to magnify the lashes and their follicles and to detect the demodex (cephalothorax with 8 legs followed by the abdomen) which measured around 300 microns of length.
