Eye abrasions often come from foreign objects in the eye. Make sure before seeking medical treatment that both eyes have been flushed with water.
Time Required: 20 minutes
- Stay Safe. If you are not the victim, practice universal precautions and wear personal protective equipment if available.
- Once both eyes have been flushed with water, cover the affected eye with a bulky dressing. Take care not to put pressure on the eye with the dressing. If the victim still feels like there is a foreign object in the eye after flushing with water, cover both eyes with a bulky dressing to keep the eye from moving and receiving more damage.
- Take the victim to medical treatment.
- Pressure is bad. Make sure you do not put any pressure on the eyes, injured or not.
