Interesting case of Foreign body in Eyelid

An 8-year-old girl presented with total ptosis of the left eyelid and periorbital inflammation reaching the lateral aspect of the face. She was referred with the diagnosis of eyelid tumor. The patient's mother reported noticing a small foreign body protruding from her daughter's eyelid which was increasing gradually in size over the course of 5 days. The girl was otherwise healthy with no history of trauma or recent travel. However, the patient had a school trip to an animal farm few days prior to the onset of her symptoms. Slit-lamp exam revealed a large tick deeply anchored to the right upper eyelid. Have you seen such case? What should be the management? (source internet)
