PostSubject: Foreign object in the eye   Sun Feb 26, 2012 8:11 pm

If you get a foreign object in your eye:

  • Wash your hands.
  • Try to flush the object out of your eye with clean water or saline solution. Use an eyecup or a small, clean drinking glass positioned with its rim resting on the bone at the base of your eye socket.
  • Another way to flush a foreign object from your eye is to get into a shower and aim a gentle stream of lukewarm water on your forehead over the affected eye while holding your eyelid open.
To help someone else:

  • Wash your hands.
  • Seat the person in a well-lighted area.
  • Gently examine the eye to find the object. Pull the lower lid down and ask the person to look up. Then hold the upper lid while the person looks down.
  • If the object is floating in the tear film on the surface of the eye, try using a medicine dropper filled with saline solution or clean, lukewarm water to flush it out. If a medicine dropper isn't available, use a glass of water or hold the person's head under a gentle stream of water.
Caution

  • Don't try to remove an object that's embedded in the eyeball.
  • Don't rub the eye.
  • Don't try to remove a large object that makes closing the eye difficult.
When to call for help
Call 911 or your local emergency number when:


  • You can't remove the object.
  • The object is embedded in the eyeball.
  • The person with the object in the eye is experiencing abnormal vision.
  • Pain, redness or the sensation of an object in the eye persists after the object is removed.
