It’s not a secret that vision is one of the most important senses people have, and you need to take care of your eyes. Probably, every person may experience a foreign body in their eyes – it can be sand, a wood chip, an eyelash, metal shaving, dirt, a piece of glass, or sawdust that causes pain or irritation. Depending on what got into the eyes and how it happened, the foreign body can just go away in several minutes or cause an injury or even infection. Our eyes are very delicate, and if you try to remove the foreign body by yourself, it can end up with negative results and more painful feelings.
Of course, you can try to gently rinse your eye with water or wipe it away with a clean cotton applicator, and if the foreign body is easy to get to, the problem will be solved. But if these attempts are unsuccessful, you should visit an eye doctor immediately. Stop by one of our two boutiques in Manhattan, New York located on the Upper West Side (280 Columbus Ave) and Upper East Side (1249 3rd Ave) to get help from the most experienced and skilled optometrists who can examine your eyes and remove a foreign body using metal instruments and good illumination without any damage.. The doctor will put anesthetic drops in your eye to prevent any pain during the procedure.
