Dr. James :

It is possible a lash may be in your eye.

Dr. James :

You can try to rinse it out with water or artificial tears.

Customer:

what shall I do

Dr. James :

The accident itself could have scratched the surface of your eye and makes it feel like something is in it when there is actually nothing.

Dr. James :

That should heal on its own.

Customer:

shall I do black tea rinse

Dr. James :

Just water or eye wash is ok.

Customer:

okay

Dr. James :

Use ice packs to reduce any swelling.

Customer:

what cause the watery eye

Dr. James :

If the pain worsens, or vision worsens, then you should see a doctor for evaluation.

Dr. James :

The watery eye is from irritation.

Dr. James :

From the scratch that you probably have.

Customer:
