Myths – Rubbing objects out of your eyes

When something is in your eye, your instinct may be to try to get it out by rubbing your eye or squinting your eyes. This can actually lodge the foreign object even deeper into your eye or scratch the eye, where it can do more damage. Instead, rinse the eye with tap water to avoid a serious abrasion or tear. If you have any further concerns then seek further medical assistance.
