How to Treat an Eye Injury

Blinking will cause the eye to water which will help to remove the foreign matter naturally. 2 Get the victim to sit down facing the light. Stand behind the victim and gently lift the eyelids. Ask the victim to roll her eyes in all directions while you try to look for the foreign body. 3 If the foreign body is spotted on the white of the eye, do the following :
i) Wet a corner of a clean handkerchief or tissue paper.
ii) Remove the foreign body by wiping it towards the outer edge of the eye. Do this gently. 4 If the foreign body is on the colored part of the eye, do not attempt to remove it because of the risk of scarring the eye tissue. 5 If you are unsuccessful in removing the foreign body, flush lukewarm water onto the eye. DO NOT use any eye bath or eye drops. 6 If the object is still lodged, cover the victim’s eye with a piece of sterile cotton pad. Secure it with adhesive tape and seek medical help.
