In brief: Foreign body in eye
You should go see a doctor and not attempt to remove this yourself.
You could do more harm than good.

You could develop a corneal abrasion and keratitis... Bad... If you have something like a metal shard ... Go to ER or see an ophthalmologist ASAP.

Other than irrigating and hoping it dislodges, there is no safe way to do it yourself.
