Thank you for your question.

It depends on what the object is and how it got into your eyes. Dust or sand particles may get into your eyes, but you should be able to feel it. The eye will tear in response to the irritation in an attempt to flush it out.

If the object is higher velocity such as grinding metal, then it may get lodged in to the eye or enter into the eyeball. The surface structures of the eye to be touched by any foreign object are the conjunctival and cornea.
