Penetrating eye injury!
Suffice to say getting a foreign body in one’s eye is not something to be casual about. Vision is critical to life function and worth protecting at almost all costs. Any scenario where an object is in one’s eye, and particularly situations where the eye has been penetrated, needs immediate medical attention. That said, there are some very minor situations where home care can alleviate the situation, or help to stabilize one’s condition to assist in preventing further injury and/or the risk of infection. Yet in most cases, getting immediate medical attention is highly recommended. Play it on the safe side. You just don’t want to mess around with your eyes.
