First Aid For Eye Injuries

Never guess about the severity of an eye injury. Seek medical attention immediately. If care is delayed, recovery is more difficult, and permanent eye damage can occur.

   Chemical Exposure:

  • DO immediately flush the eye with water continuously for 30 minutes.
  • DO NOT try to neutralize the chemical.

Blows to the Eye:

  • DO place a clean cloth filled with crushed ice (the size of a golf ball) gently over the eye.
  • DO see your doctor immediately if you have swelling, bleeding, vision loss or double vision occurs.
  • DO protect the eye with something hard, such as glasses or sunglasses.
  • DO NOT blow your nose. It may cause an eye infection.
  • DO NOT rub your eye.
  • DO NOT wash out.
  • DO NOT apply pressure to the eye.
  • DO NOT wash out the eye or try to remove an object stuck in the eye or orbit (socket).

Cuts or Punctures of the Eye or Eyelid:

  • DO see your eye doctor immediately.
  • DO protect the eye with something hard, such as glasses or sunglasses.
  • DO NOT wash out the eye or try to remove an object stuck in the eye or orbit (socket).
  • DO NOT apply pressure to the eye.

Foreign Body in the Eye:

  • DO see your eye doctor immediately.
  • DO allow natural tearing to flush out the particle.
  • DO NOT remove protruding object.
  • DO NOT directly rub a speck or particle. Pull upper eyelid down over lower eyelid.


Sunglasses, with or without prescription, are the best protection against UV rays.
