If foreign objects land in the eye, this can be very uncomfortable. Fortunately, you can often simply remove smaller objects yourself. We’ll show you how it works best.
With small foreign bodies in the eye, your body mostly helps itself. Eyelashes, small insects or dust grains can often be easily rinsed out of the eye by the tear fluid. If this does not work, you can carefully help yourself to remove the foreign body.
Safely remove foreign objects in the eye
You are sure that the foreign body only on the surface of your eye lies? Then you can try to carefully remove it. Make sure that you do not rub the foreign body outwards, but wipe it towards the nose to the tear duct. You can quickly get rid of loose eyelashes, for example.
