Eye Care: Object in the Eye

princ_rm_photo_of_eye_with_corneal_abrasionMany nerve endings lurk just beneath the surface or your cornea, so a tiny speck can be surprisingly painful. Don’t rub the eye, or you may cause serious damage. Gently flushing the eye with lukewarm water is often recommended. If it doesn’t dislodge the foreign body, or you have any questions, call a medical provider who can remove the object and provide antibiotic drops to protect the cornea from infection.
