Foreign Body Removal

It is not uncommon for particles to get into an eye and adhere to the ocular surface: metal from a grinder, grass from a lawn mower, dirt from our Texas Panhandle winds, etc. Frequently these particles become embedded deeply enough on the eye that they cannot be rinsed out. Our doctors treat these occurrences on a daily basis. The goal is to remove these "foreign bodies" with as little disruption to the surface of the eye as possible. We take all necessary steps to minimize scarring and prevent any secondary infections. Bandages and eye patches are seldom needed anymore in the process of treatment. Proper removal of the foreign body, and the use of special "bandage contact lenses," aid in a faster recovery and fewer long-term problems with the eye.
