Whether we are working on the job-site or cleaning at home, a foreign object can get into our eyes and cause some serious damage. It is important to know what to do in the event that something gets into your eye. Fortunately, Winchester Optical in Winchester, MA has some information that will help you treat your eye in the event that something has become lodged in it unexpectedly. 

Symptoms of Foreign Object in Eye

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms then it is a possibility that something has become lodged in your eye. 

  • Pressure or discomfort
  • Eye Pain
  • Excessive blinking
  • A sensation that something is in your eyelid

What To Do If Something is In Your Eye

If you begin to experience immediate pain, you need to try and wash out your eyes with water. This can help move foreign debris out of your eye. However, if the foreign object is too large you will need to come and see an optometrist immediately as trying to remove it yourself could cause more harm than good.

How Your Eye Doctor Can Help

Your eye doctor will be able to perform an exam to find out the cause of the foreign object. He or she will then decide on what course of action to take after they have located the object after the exam. This is the safest way to remove this foreign object from your head and prevent any further damage from occurring.
