    I got a small piece of "something" in my eye yesterday, probably a particle of animal fur or a wood shaving. It sits there, and I can't get it out! And this is my "good" yey, which can see more or less normal without the glasses.
    Probably have to go to a doctor, but afraid to do so.
    GRRRRRR :angry-fla

    eyedrops

    go to the drugstore and buy eyedrops try to rinse it out. Otherwise ask somebody to accompany you to the doctor. Good luck

    Don't rub it incase you scratched your cornea, it can feel like something in there, yet its a scratch.

    Also, have someone look, you may have burst a blood vessel or something, that too can give the feeling of something in your eye.

    Have you used an eye cup to rinse? If you cannot afford the doctor, again don't rub it, patch it with gauze for a day and see if you can tear it out, otherwise, you will have to break down and go.

    I will hope and pray for you. I am sorry you are hurting.

    Thanks everyone!
    I was trying to rinse it out with eye rinse solution and with the water in eye-wash station at work... Just made it worse.
    So, I called my optometrist's office, and he tolled me to come in, and I did so, accompanied by my stepson. It took him a few seconds to numb my eye and take this piece of wood shaving out!
    Have to be on some antibiotics now for a short while.
    Feel so relieved!

    I'm ever so glad you went to the doctor, Linda. Things could have turned quite nasty if you left it much longer. Not to mention, anything to do with eyes is right painful! I hope your eye is better soon.
