Your eye is very fragile, and there are plenty of different objects that can get lodged on the surface of your eye and cause damage. Some of the more serious bodies that can get imbedded in your eye include glass or metal shards, but damage can also be caused by dirt, dust, or even eyelashes.
If you have something stuck in your eye, do not rub it. Rubbing your eye can cause deeper injury or corneal abrasion. Instead, contact our team for assistance.
Depending on the severity of your injury, your optometrist might be able to remove the body without damaging your eye. If the damage is more serious, you may be recommended to visit an emergency room for treatment.
First Aid Tips
If you have experienced a chemical burn, wash your eyes out for 15 to 20 minutes with cool, clean water and seek medical help immediately.
For minor trauma, place a cold compress over your eye and contact an optometrist or doctor for further assistance. For major blows, seek help immediately.
Do not wash or touch your eye if you have experienced any tears, scratches, or punctures to your eyelid. Cover the area with an eye shield and seek medical help immediately.

“Dr. Chatoo is by far the kindest and most down-to-earth physician I have ever met. My cousin liked the glasses I got from her office so much that she called Dr. Chatoo to see if she could get herself a pair. Dr. Chatoo actually took the time to help my cousin find the glasses again, calling multiple different places and placing the order for her. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients, and I will be her patient for life. Thank you so much, Dr. Chatoo!”
“Had the best experience. Very chic and friendly place. Roya is one of the most friendly assistants. I came here for a visit before returning to uni, and she helped me get an appointment, AND my new eyeglasses ready all in less than a week. The doctor is also so detailed and helped explain everything concerning my eyes to me. Will definitely come back for my next check-up.”
