Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Was this at the dentists office?
Ok. Well, the best way to make sure that the piece of amalgam is not under your eyelid is to see an ophthalmologist....in this case, an optometrist will probably do just fine also.
The doctor will flip over your lid and look closely with the slit lamp and explore the area with Qtip etc. I don't think this is something you can take care of yourself at home.
Does this make sense to you?

Is there anything else I can add to our discussion?
yes. I did look under the eyelid just now and I found a little area that red. is it possible the the piece has gone in to the tissue?
