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

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?

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

I poked my eye and a couple hours later I found a little scratch in the white part of my eye. Should I be worried?

Eyeball scratch: Anytime there is a break in the integrity of the skin there is the potential for an infection developing. You can get antibiotic eye drops.

I poked my eye iris with a sharp paper and now there is a hole in it. Is it gonna heal itself?

I poked my eye iris with a sharp paper and now there is a hole in it. Is it gonna heal itself?

Need eye exam: Your iris is covered by a clear dome called the cornea. I can't imagine a situation where a piece of paper is able to cut through the cornea and then cut the iris. But if you injured your eye in any way, it is prudent to get an eye exam immediately. See an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Good luck. ...Read more

I poked my eye with led pencil it hurts a little and it is watery but nothing's there what should I do?

I poked my eye with led pencil it hurts a little and it is watery but nothing's there what should I do?

Flush: I think it sounds like you got really lucky. If you had pierced your cornea you would likely see red in the white part of your eye. You likely bruised it a bit and that's why it's a bit tender and the fact that it's watering is good because it's your eye's natural way of trying to flush out whatever was poked into it. I would advise getting and over the counter saline eye flush and flush 3x a day ...Read more

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
