Dr. James :

Can you clarify what you got in your eye?
What have you done for it?
One or both eyes?


chive herb one eye

Dr. James :

You should rinse out your eyes with water to get all the foreign body out. It appears you have already one that. You may still feel some residual discomfort but that should improve once all the chives are out. You should continue to lubricate that eye with artificial tears.

Dr. James :

If you develop discharge, worsening redness, pain, or decreased vision, then you should be evaluated promptly. Otherwise, keeping your eye lubricated is important.
