I'm sure that's the case. But does anyone know about toxocariasis incidence in Switzerland. Having known a child be blinded in one eye by ocular toxocariasis, it's not an idle question even if it is Friday!
A quick Google search seems to indicate it's rare, but does happen. All of these sources are at least 20 years old, so maybe someone else can find more current figures?
