What would happen if an eyelash goes in an eye and you can't take it out?

I don't mean literally in the eyeball i mean under the eyelid.

It would cause a lot of discomfort. Hopefully come out in tears eventually. It could irritate or scratch the eye if it doesn't come out.

Carefully try to pull it off. Don't use tweezers! If that doesn't work see a doctor, or an eye specialist. That happened to my friend, and now she has a ' sty' on her eye, it's a little bump and Idk if its contagious or not.

Your body will get rid of it. Probably by a tear.

The eyelash will eventually wash itself out with the natural moisture in your eye. If it is up under your lid, it may take a little while. Try squirting some saline solution around your eye. Drugstores or discount stores will have this in the section for contact lens supplies. Get generic. Otherwise, try not to scratch your eye hard - it could cause an abrasion (scratch). If you only have warm water, that will work, but will make your eye red for a bit. Good luck!

It totally sucks... I've had it happen to me twice, I flushed water in my eye for several minutes and it came out. If you try hard enough it will always come out :D it hurts a lot but definitely run water in it if your experiencing it

It would cause a lot of pain/discomfort but your eye would probably flush it out with tears but if it didn't it it would scratch you eye.

It's the worst if you have contacts in. You HAVE to get it out or it can scratch your cornea

It should come out in your tears or in your sleep.
