Foreign Body

What to do if you get something in your eye.

While the most common foreign body injury is metal, it is possible to get other things into your eye that you just cannot remove without the aid of a microscope and steady, educated hands. If it is indeed metal, it must be removed or else it will continue to rust in your eyes and cause inflammation. If you feel you have gotten something in your eye, please do not hesitate to call us. If it is after business hours, our answering service will direct you to one of our doctors.

And remember: Most injuries to the eye can be prevented by wearing proper safety eyewear.
