Husband got saw dust in his eye. have used a bottle of eye wash. He says he can feel something moving around. Under the top eyelid. has been about 9 hrs now.

Dr. Dan B. : Hello and thanks for your question. I think you have a couple of options...
Dr. Dan B. : The first would be to have him use artificial tears several times per day for the next couple of days. He can also use a lubricating eye ointment in that eye as much as he likes to help soothe this sensation. Second...
Dr. Dan B. : Another alternative would be to go to an urgent care clinic or to the emergency room if it is really bothering him significantly to have a doctor examine him to see if there is anything that needs to be pulled out of his eye.
Dr. Dan B. : Does this make sense?

Is there chances of real harm being done if this takes several days to work out?
