Frequently Asked Questions

If a small, loose object is in your eye, you can try gently flushing it out with clean, lukewarm water. However, for anything embedded or causing significant pain, avoid flushing and seek medical attention immediately.

Healing time depends on the severity of the injury. Minor scratches typically heal within a few days, while more serious injuries may take weeks or even months to heal completely.

Minor corneal scratches usually heal within a few days. However, if your irritation persists, worsens, or is accompanied by increased pain, redness, or pus discharge, it’s important to see an eye doctor to rule out infection or ensure the scratch is healing properly.

Absolutely not! Wearing contact lenses can trap bacteria and significantly increase your risk of infection, especially with an eye injury. Stick to eyeglasses until your eye heals completely.

It’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention for any eye injury that causes:

  • Severe pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Changes in vision, like seeing double or having blind spots
  • Significant bleeding in the white part of the eye
  • A foreign object stuck in the eye that you can’t remove easily
  • Sensitivity to light that doesn’t improve
