something in my eye

Hi, This morning I was a happy person; dad is ok, brother is ok, mother is

ok. The sky was blue, etc. when out of a sudden something attacked my

eye; a foreign body. I tried to do some exercises to my eye up and down,

but it was aching and tickling.

Tears were coming out like never before. So, I used water to wash the

thingy away and it only alleviate the problem but the aching came later

more and more.

Ok, I went to the health center where I found many old ladies. I was

number 26 and the nurse Cool told me not to wait but to get back after

three hours. Washing again and again. I got there in time where the oculist

looked everywhere in my eye. I know, he said it was fine.

The moment I was there, I felt a little better, maybe the washing

technique kicked in.

I got the drops and I'm fine now. Hope nothing will change.

I want to say that a man told me about his way in treating the problem in

seconds. He said that I must use the rose water.

what do you think? and are there any other tricks?

I use "Refresh Tears" because of dry eyes. I find that if I get a cinder in my eye, and squirt a large amount of Refresh, it usually washes the foreign body out.

I would be leery about using tap water in my eyes. Sometimes, there is a bit of mold gunk that settles in the faucet, and I would not want to get any of that in my eye.

Thanks Phoenix, I think I would try this refresh tears. You are right about

tap water, but it was the only way there.

Now there is something new; the foreign body is out and the doctor found

nothing there. He said that there was nothing there, and my eye is clear.

Ok, I feel that my upper lid is a little bit swollen and heavy. Also, there is a

little secretion and this only after getting from sleep. The doctor gave

me some drops to use it four times a day.

I think I know the othere reason. I was exposed to hydrogen sulfide in the

lab. Probably, this is the reason.

What should I do now? this what was missing!

I don't know about chemicals, but after a foreign body is removed, it often feels like it is still there after several hours.

Exposure to lower concentrations can result in eye irritation, a sore throat and cough, shortness of breath, and fluid in the lungs. These symptoms usually go away in a few weeks. Long-term, low-level exposure may result in fatigue, loss of appetite, headaches, irritability, poor memory, and dizziness. Higher concentrations of 700-800 ppm tend to be fatal.

If the irritation continues, or gets worse, it might be a good idea to have it checked out by an ophthalmologist. Better safe than sorry!

There is nothing pink here. A normal eye, except the little sleepy lazy like

eye with a bit of secretion as I said.

Hi Phoenix, nothing of the symptoms above I have. At least not now except the irritation thingy.

The symptoms of infectious conjunctivitis caused by a bacteria or viruses are:


Eye pain

Swelling of the eyes

Redness in the eyes

Yellow, green or watery discharge from the eyes which collects overnight and crusts over the eye

A gritty feeling in the eye

Itching of the eye

An enlarged lymph gland in front of the ear


As with all things, you can have one or more of any of these symptoms. If your eye is the least bit bloodshot or red, see your doctor.

Thanks Bella, I think I must get my both eyes checked.

With your eyes, you can never be too safe.

A while back, I got a bacterial infection in both eyes. Left untreated, it could have left me blind. Now, I have disposable contacts that I don't wear 24/7. I wash my hands before handling my contacts. And I get an eye exam every year.

:wink:

Have you thought about a lazer surgery? People do it here, and they can

do without specs or lens as I heard.

I once thought I had something in my eye. I tried to wash it out with water, then got some sort of eye wash and it wouldn't come out. I felt stupid, but the damn thing hurt, so I called the doctor. It ended up being a scratched cornea - scratched over the entire eye.

Like Bella said you can't be too careful.

weekend.

Navigator--

Glad to hear your eye has improved. When you keep your appointment, schedule a little extra time for yourself that morning.

Hold your dominion.

Hi everybody, the super hero is here again Cool

I wonder what is wrong with this eye again, the same problem poped up

again. But there is a difference which is I know what is under my eye lid. It's

something like small pimple or blister or don't know exactly. However I can

feel it with my hand.

I thought at first it's a foreign body, but now it's clear. Do I have to go to the

opthalmologist again?

Hospitals, I hate them.

Could you call the opthalmologist first? Maybe if it is really nothing it could save you a visit. I would call and see what they have to say.

Hi Linkat, last time he found nothing wrong! and gave me eyedrops anyway.

I'm planning to go downtown and take my old man with me. He has the same

thing with one of his eye, reddish, and can't open it when he gets up in the

morning.
