Home remedy:

Assuming the cloth is cotton-like, blow hot breath a few times on a spot and place on eye.
Repeat a few times. Has worked every time in my experience ...

Foreign Objects In The Eye

Something in the eye is not just painful - it could endanger eyesight. Foreign objects that rest on the eyelid or inside the lid can be washed out, but foreign matter that is embedded in the eye or will not wash out must be treated by a physician.

If irritation or other symptoms continue after a loose foreign object has been removed from the eye, the object may have scratched the cornea (the clear covering of the colored part of the eye.). An ophthalmologist or emergency room doctor can quickly check the cornea for injury. A scratched cornea usually heals in 24 to 48 hours when covered with an eye patch.

How To Spot It

Foreign matter in the eye can cause a stinging or burning pain, especially when blinking. The tears flow and eyes turn red or bloodshot. The patient may become sensitive to light and get a headache.

How To Treat It

Follow these steps:

1. Do not rub the eye; rubbing might scratch the eyeball.
2. Make tears flow by blinking. This could wash out the object.

3. If something is stuck inside the top eyelid, pull out the top eyelash and pull the lid down over the lower lid.

4. If this doesn't work, gently flush the eye with clean lukewarm water poured from a glass.
5. You might be able to see and remove the object from the white part of the eye , using a twisted corner of a clean cloth or handkerchief.
6. Do not try to take out something that is stuck in the cornea.
7. If you cannot remove the object, cover both eyes with a dry, sterile gauze pad and take the patient to a doctor.
8. Do not try to remove someone's contact lenses.

How To Prevent It

The National Society to Prevent Blindness says that 90% of all eye damage is preventable. More eye injuries happen at home than any where else. To protect your eyes, always wear safety goggles when using power tools, lawn and garden equipment, and other machinery that sling dirt and debris. Be careful not to let fumes from solvents and cleaning agents burn your eyes.

Ericka just took a look at it for me, she says it looks like I have a bump on my eyelid. I was trying to do what maddox said, pulling out the eyelid and flushing it with water, but it wasn't helping. I don't feel it very much with my eyes open, but closing and blinking I do.

It doesn't hurt at all. I can just feel it when I close or blink my eyes.

Plus I don't have health insurance and am broke as ****, so there's no way I can see the doctor unless it's a supra-emergency.

This has happened to me a couple of times. Usually when I get sand blown into my face from a windy day. Basically what happened to me is that the sand or whatever went into my eye scratched my cornea. It usually passes after a while, and it shouldn't hurt (otherwise, see a doctor for sure). For me it'd usually pass after I took a nap or something like that, it just had to heal itself I guess.

Oh, and from my experience if whatever you think is in there doesn't come out when you flush your eye with water, then it usually means that this did happen. Flushing my eye with water would usually hurt me more, so I wouldn't suggest it.

Sperm in the eye really burns. It's like rubbing alcohol or something. I don't know why but it just hurts pretty bad.

Not saying you have **** in your eye. I just wanted to contribute something.

Whatever it was, it's gone. I think it might have had something to do with the sun. Me and the sun have never gotten along. It makes me sneeze and burns me. And I have to work in it all day. It made my eye swell shut before, so it must have just been launching another attack on me.

DAMN YOU SUN!

You know way too much about eyes, man.

All I know is that I have two of them. Some stupid people dont. Those people suck compared to me.
