No, not the smoke that got in my eye..
Last week, I started to feel something strange, a feeling that there is a foreign object that invaded my eye. I did not pay attention to it because I thought it was not really serious at all. It's an external problem just like a dust because I could see and feel it in my eye. Today, I felt irritated that it already affected my whole body, my mood and my whole being. I called up Manila Eye Specialist for an appointment. The ophthalmologist who checked my eye found an eyelash that grew towards the cornea direction. The doctor removed it safely and there.. my vision came back to normal again. It really pays to see a specialist (literally) who knows exactly what to do. Our eyes are very delicate so it is just important to see an eye doctor if you feel something strange in your eye to avoid any problem like loss of vision, if not treated properly. I was given an antibacterial solution to drop into my left eye for five days/four times a day. I was glad to see an eye doctor early because a corneal abrasion is already starting to damage my vision. Corneal abrasions are common but this problem could be so bad because cornea is very sensitive and could be painful sometimes. I told my doctor that I only flushed my eyes with water and did not rub it and he said I was right but the eyelash that entered into my left eye already scratched my cornea.
Tips when something gets in your eye.
Don't ever rub your eyes with your hands. rubbing can cause abrasion.
If you can't remove it, gently flush your eye with clean water.
Blink your eye several times.
See a specialist. Only an eye doctor could safely remove it.
