What To Do For An Eye Injury
For All Eye Injuries:
DO NOT touch, rub or apply pressure to the eye.
DO NOT try to remove the object stuck in the eye.
Do not apply ointment or medications to the eye.
See a doctor as soon as possible, preferably an ophthalmologist.
If Your Eye Has Been Cut or Punctured
Gently place a shield over the eye. The bottom of a paper cup taped to the bones surrounding the eye can serve as a shield until you get medical attention.
DO NOT rinse with water.
DO NOT remove the object stuck in the eye.
DO NOT rub or apply pressure to eye.
Avoid giving aspirin, ibuprofen or other non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs thin the blood and may increase bleeding.
After you have finished protecting the eye, see a physician immediately.
If You Get A Particle or Foreign Body In Your Eye
DO NOT rub the eye.
Lift the upper eyelid over the lashes of your lower lid.
Blink several times and allow tears to flush out the particle.
If the particle remains, keep your eye closed and seek medical attention.
In Case of a Chemical Burn To The Eye
Immediately flush the eye with plenty of clean water
Seek emergency medical treatment right away.
To Treat a Blow to the Eye or Eye Socket
Gently apply a small cold compress to reduce pain and swelling.
DO NOT apply any pressure.
If a black eye, pain or visual disturbance occurs even after a light blow, immediately contact your ophthalmologist or emergency room.
Remember that even a light blow can cause a significant eye injury.
To Treat Sand or Small Debris in the Eye
Use eyewash to flush the eye out.
DO NOT rub the eye.
If the debris doesn't come out, lightly bandage the eye and see an ophthalmologist or visit the nearest emergency room.
