Swollen Eyes After Feeling Like There Is A Foreign Object Into The Eye?
Hi, yesterday I was in the upper eyelid like there was a stone and so according to my grandfather, his eyes were blinking in the water containing betel leaves I had done but still there. I feel like walking back and forth when I sleep, the position of the brake is very disturbing for my activities. Then I tried to blink my eyes in the water but this time I did not use betel leaves using ordinary water in the faucet, well thank God the pebbles on the lids were successfully expelled but the next day when I woke up my eyes became swollen, infection from tap water earlier or what yaa .

The eye is a vision organ with excellent precision for individual comfort in seeing and using the eyes according to their function. When the eye is entered by a foreign object, this foreign object causes interference with the precision of this eye, which causes a sensation of being stuck in the eye especially when the eye is moved.
Foreign objects that enter the eye can cause eye irritation, watery eyes, red eyes, injury to the eye, to infection in the eye. So avoiding rubbing hands to the eye can prevent the risk of injury to the surface of the patient's eye and prevent eye inflammation that interfere.
The examination by a doctor is expected to be able to find out the cause of this foreign object, know the care and treatment that will be given and the doctor will know the complications that may occur due to this foreign object in the eye.
In connection with your question, any swelling that you feel after the entry of a foreign object in your eye may be caused by inflammation of the outer layer of the eye due to friction and irritation from the incoming foreign object. Therefore, the inflammatory process in the form of redness, swollen eyes, and sore and runny eyes can accompany this complaint. Another possibility is that some or all of the foreign matter still stays in your eyeballs, causing the eyes to swell even more.
If these complaints increase, you should consult your family doctor or eye doctor. The doctor can do a physical examination to make sure the foreign body is loose, as well as ensuring swelling of the eyelids due to foreign objects can be handled and treated properly. If the examination results state, the swelling is caused by an infection due to complications from the injury, then the doctor can give antibiotics to treat it.
For now, avoid contact with your eyes, wipe tears with clean tissue, and rest your eyes. You can also give cold water compresses for the next two days.
