Poked My Eye With Tweezers
Exam: If you sustained a corneal abrasion or scrape to the eye, it would be painful, watering, red, and difficult to open. Otherwise if it resolves quickly, then probably just a minor irritation that can be helped by lubricating with artificial tear drops. ...Read more
What do I do? I poked my my eye lid with. Tweezers. There is no blood but my eye stings and is res with irritation. It has been 2 days now.
See the eye doctor: It is possible that you've injured the protective covering of your eye and have scraped your cornea. This is called a corneal abrasion. If left untreated it can get worse. Go see your doctor so that they can look at it and make sure there's no infection, and can patch appropriately ...Read more

Does anyone know about eye injuries, I got something in my eye and can't get it out with tweezers?
I Just got my puppy and she was covered in ticks. I was taking them off using tweezers and one popped in my eye. I already flushed my eye?
Tricky ticks: Well it is summertime and the ticks are out, so a bit of prevention is always worthwhile. In your case, remember that there's a natural reflex for the eye to close when an object comes near - so I don't think the tick could have actually hit your eye ball? In any case, you washed the area thoroughly right after-so it would have been removed. If you have eye symptoms, see an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Please put down the: Tweezers and step away from the magnifying mirror. See your dermatologist for products that help with blackheads and know that pores can look dark if the keratin inside (which is normal) is exposed to air by your picking. Hope that helps ...Read more
Internal damage: Hopefully your orbital bones absorbed most of the blow. The eye, if struck, can suffer internal damage : bleeding, lens dislocation, retinal hemorrhage, edema of retina, optic nerve damage, retinal detachment and other problems.

My baby poked me in the eye this morning. My eye was fine for a few hours, but now it won't stop tearing?
Abrasion: Probably your babys finger scratched off a little of the surface epithelium of your cornea, which can lead to pain and tearing. If you have some lubricating drops you can apply those to comfort the eye. If it still bothers you by tomorrow, especially if the eye is red or the vision is diminished, then you should have your ophthalmologist. See you. ...Read more
Accidentally one of my friend poked into my eyes. It's paining and I am not able to see clearly from left eye. What should I do?
Ophthalmologist: You need to have this evaluated by an ophthalmologist. You probably have a corneal abrasion which could explain the pain and blurred vision you are experiencing. Until you can be seen keep the eye closed with cold compresses as much as possible, and use sterile artifical tears for lubrication. ...Read more

See an eye md for an evaluation. ...Read more
Wide range of things: Anything from an abrasion of tissues that heals without permanent damage to blindness from a penetrating injury due to infection. Bleeding in the eye, cataract formation, and corneal scarring are common from sharp injuries. See an eye md emergently for such an injury. ...Read more
No: Nothing's impossible, but the eye is very well attached in the orbit, by both the optic nerve, 6 extraocular muscles and multiple soft tissue attachments. It take significant trauma to forcefully remove an eye. If by "poking your eye out" you mean just penetrating it or rupturing it, this is more plausible, but would still require significant force. ...Read more
Can be: Yes. If it persists for a few days or is associated with other symptoms (pain, visual loss, discharge) see a physician. ...Read more
