Eye Irritation Due To Foreign Objects In The Eye.?
Hello, doctor. This is my image, before I wanted to ask about what happened to my eyes. Last night, my left eye felt strange. Until Friday, I tried to “wash” my eyes using water by putting them in my eyes. It turns out that when the water comes in, I feel that the bottom of my eye hurts a bit (even though I usually never do it when I wash like that). Finally I tried to check what was happening. I saw eyelashes stuck under my eyes. I made it out. After my lashes had come out, I felt my eyes were weird (I thought maybe because the eyelashes had been kept too long plus maybe it was rubbed so it made my eyes hurt so it hurts a little) Until today I also felt the same thing, hit by the light tears come right out of the left eye and are a bit sore. Finally I think just buy insto to neutralize. Is this bad? And how can it heal by itself or what?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Foreign objects in the eye, in the case of eyelashes, are the most common cause of eye irritation. Foreign objects in the eye will cause eye irritation. Normally these eyelashes can come out on their own, because the body will respond to these foreign objects by increasing the production of tears, but in some cases these eyelashes are difficult to get out so that aggravates the irritation that occurs. Symptoms that can arise in the form of a lump, pain, excessive blinking of eyes, discomfort, red eyes, watery eyes especially when seeing bright light, and so forth. To remove it, you should use a special liquid for the eyes or use intravenous fluids, avoid rubbing or trying to remove eyelashes by hand or an unsterile device because it can aggravate the irritation that occurs. The presence of foreign bodies and rubbing habits will cause irritation to infections in the eye, such as conjunctivitis, keratitis, and so forth. In keratitis inflammation occurs in the cornea of the eye, causing a sharp decrease in vision and this is a condition that requires doctor handling. If eye complaints are uncomfortable staying a few days or are accompanied by other complaints such as red eyes, runny eyes, eye discharge, decreased vision, and other complaints you should check with your doctor for further examination, the doctor will conduct an examination with a slit lamp and ophthalmoscope to find out the cause of the complaint. Then the doctor can do the right treatment for you. The doctor may irrigate the eye with special fluids, administer eye drops, take medication, or perform certain medical procedures if needed. It is better to avoid rubbing your eyes, wash your hands before and after cleaning the eyes, avoid using excessive eye makeup, apply warm compresses on the eyes, avoid using contact lenses, and eat healthy and nutritious food, adequate rest, and sufficient fluid needs .
Thank you and hope that helps,
