I had a eyelash in my eye, but I couldn't get it out, and now I think its moved to the back of my eye, because I can't see it or feel it

Was just wondering if this will cause any problems or damage?

  • there is no communication with the front of the eye to the back of the eye under normal circumstances. the conjunctiva (which lines the white part of the eye, the sclera) forms a sac and comes forward over the eyelid. pull down your lower eyelid and you'll see what i mean.as for the lash, it may have come out on its own, but if you are feeling periodic irritation it may be trapped in the sac (known as the 'fornix') of the upper lid. you could either evert the upper lid yourself (or most likely have your doctor do it) to check for anything there.

  • Right. It could get out of its own but if you feel that it is still in your eye, go to a doctor. This is not a big deal for them to solve your problem. Good luck.

  • Repeated irritation of the nerve bundle behind the eye could result in permanent vision loss. You must scoop the eye out with a spoon and rinse with clean water. Don't worry.. the nerve bundle has about 6 inches so the eye will not fall out. Be sure to replace the eye while wearing surgical gloves that are sterile, as in infection could also result in vision loss.ShulaM.D

  • I managed to get it out, the day after :)But surely scooping out your eye, isn't the way to do it, no matter what you get in your eye

  • Wow! Unregistered Has Really Got To Get A Life. It Has Become Obsessed With Pretending To Be Shula!!! Except It Gives Really Stupid Advice Whereas Shula Is Educated, Refers To Appropriate Practitioners And Has A Classy Vibe!!! This Intruder Reeks Of Jealousy And Envy And Ignorance And Is Bloated With Not Even Having The Basic Compassion Gene In "its" Dna.

  • I managed to get it out, the day after :)But surely scooping out your eye, isn't the way to do it, no matter what you get in your eyeI'm glad you got it out. This is the real Shula, posting. Please note, that if a post is by me, it will be by me as registered, "Shula." I am not a doctor (never played one on TV) and would NEVER sign "MD" or any other inane fakery. And once I registered, I have never posted without my registration. That is, I have not and will not post "unregistered."Luckily, this "advice" for scooping out the eye is so insane, that one would hope NO one would ever even think it was honest advice. Nonetheless, please do report it, so it will be removed.Best,Shula
