Objects stuck or embedded in the eye

  1. Leave the object in place. DO NOT try to remove the object. DO NOT touch it or apply any pressure to it.
  2. Calm and reassure the person.
  3. Wash your hands.
  4. Bandage both eyes. If the object is large, place a paper cup or cone over the injured eye and tape it in place. Cover the uninjured eye with gauze or a clean cloth. If the object is small, cover both eyes with a clean cloth or sterile dressing. Even if only one eye is affected, covering both eyes will help prevent eye movement.
  5. Get medical help immediately.
