I was pulling apart the mascara on my eyelashes w-a safety pin & poked my eyeball-its not hurting, have contact in?
Exam: As mild as your symptoms appear, it still is very important to have an Eye MD check your eye for any subtle injury (and to the contact lens). Just a superficial poke could introduce a contaminate into the corneal surface (or deeper) resulting in a bad infection. Is is doubtful that you perforated your eyeball with so little discomfort, but you never know. Safety pins & eyes don't belong together. ...Read more

Eye exam: I would allow more time to grow than two weeks first of all, before you start worrying. Secondly, its important to get an eye exam, because, not to scare you, but there are certain cancerous lesions that can cause your eyelashes to fall out, especially if you're light skinned, and older than 40yo, and a long history of sun exposure. Go see your eyemd ;-). ...Read more
