If you have ever gotten something in your eye, you know how painful that can be. Blaine Eye Clinic is prepared to help you if this ever happens to you. It is best if you are seen right away to have your eye evaluated. If the foreign body is still present, it is best to have it removed it as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
The doctor will evaluate your affected eye on an emergency basis using a special microscope designed specifically for evaluating eyes. If there is something in your eye, he or she will use appropriate equipment that is designed to remove the foreign body after using anesthetic drops. This procedure is painless.
After the foreign body is removed, you may still feel scratchiness for some time, depending on the extent of the injury. Your doctor may place you on some medications and re-evaluate your eye the next day to make sure it is healing properly and not developing an infection.
