Can an optometrist remove an slightly embedded spec of dirt from the sclera of the eye--gives an scatchy feeling?

Yes: Probably any procedure such as this should be done by an ophthalmologist which can be done as an office procedure in a moment. Foreign specks either stick to the cornea or to the conjunctiva under the upper lid. The sclera is covered with a layer of tissue and so a speck such as you describe is not on the sclera directly. ...Read more

When foreign objects get in your eye (like an eyelash or cosmetics) what is its path out of the body? Or does it leave the body?

Moves towards nose: Any object in the eye, including normal mucus moves towards the nose with the normal blinking of eyelids and the object will come out at the inner end of the eye. Small object may make through the nasolacrymal duct into the nose.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

My eyes having a problem in vision little blurred and some different kind of warms type of images are appearing in my vision dry eyes and irritation?

Perhaps: Dry eyes can cause blurred vision, but in combination with seeing images of "worms" there is a concern that there might be other problems. The vitreous (jelly in the back of the eye) and the retina (wallpaper in the back inside surface of the eye) can come off and create very similar symptoms. It is best to see an eye md for a complete eye evaluation. ...Read more

What happens when a foreign body gets in the eye?

Gets removed: Most ocular foreign bodies are actually "on" the eye, not "in" the eye, and are removed in the office with eyedrop anesthesia.
