What should be done in an eye emergency?
Seek medical attention as soon as possible following an injury, particularly if you have pain in the eye, blurred vision, loss of vision or loss of field of vision. There are several simple first aid steps that can and should be taken until medical assistance is obtained.
Particles in the eye
- Do not rub the eye.
-Try to let your tears wash the speck out or irrigate the eye with an artificial tear solution.
-Try lifting the upper eyelid outward and down over the lower eyelid to remove the particle.
-If the particle does not wash out, keep the eye closed, bandage it lightly and seek medical care.
