If my eye suddenly hit by small pebbles/dust, it fells like it goes into my eyes. Actually where does it go?
Outside of the eye: The front surface of the eye is surrounded by a membrane (the conjunctiva) which wraps from the edge of the colored portion (the cornea) posteriorly and folds back to coat the inside of the lids. This is an external space, not connected to the inside of the eye or body. So debris entering this space is flushed out by tears and generally poses no hazard unless it is of high velocity and power. ...Read more

Usually not: Sawdust commonly enters the eyes of those working with wood and near those working with wood. With each blink, most exits. Most saw dust is inert and will not be toxic in itself. The major harm would be for instance if someone is drilling in wood, creating sawdust of course, but hitting a piece of metal which flies into the eye. ...Read more
