Eye Checkup

During a foreign body removal, the optometrist will first examine your eye to determine the location and type of the foreign object. They may use special instruments such as a magnifying lens or a bright light to help visualize the object. Once the foreign object has been identified, the optometrist may use a specialized tool such as a micro-spatula, forceps or irrigation to gently remove the object. In some cases, numbing drops may be used to reduce any discomfort during the procedure. After the foreign body has been removed, the optometrist will examine the eye again to ensure that no further treatment is needed and that the eye is healthy. They may also provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and prevent any potential complications.
