Try rinsing it out with cold water, u can get a bottle cap and dip your eye in it if that doesn't work get a doctor to look at it

I had pink eye when I thought I had an eyelash in my eye. Little did I know I spread it to my other eye. You need a prescription from the dr. I took about two weeks before it cleared up. It is very catagious.

Fill your hand with luke warm water, lean over, and put your eye in the water and open and close your eye 3 or 4 times. It might feel like it's still in there for awhile after you get it out, so wait 10 minutes or so, don't rub it, then repeat the eye wash. If that doesn't work you will need to see a doctor.

The same thing happened to me. I even went into my family doctor where they put that solution into my eye and used the black light cotraption. I was convinced there was something in my eye. There wasn't. It turns out that it was allergies and that an allergy can present itself in this way-feeling like there's something in your eye. It is that time of the year... Everything is blooming. I take a 'Zyrtec' every day during allergy season and i don't get that annoying feeling in my eye anymore.

I have the same problem that you have... This is my first time getting it ever... I was so scared, I went to my eye doctor too, and I feel something in my left eye, but nothing is there. He says it was allergies too, I gotta go get eye drops. Did you get eye drops? And does zyrtec really work? Like, the irritating feeling goes away?

Go to your eye doctor as soon as you can. I had something that felt like that and it turned out to be corneal abrasion and I had to start medication immediately. It could be something else, but it's best to play it safe because your vision is not something to fool around with. Good luck!

Try washing your eye out. If that Dosnt work you need to see doctor. My aunt scratched Hersey and she waited so long that they had to do surgery on her eye. I had a scratch in my eye but I didn't wait as long so they prescribed eye drops

I had something like this last year and still get it occasionally. I went to the wynnum hospital, some other hospital and the children's mater hospital and it lasted 2 weeks. The doctors could find anything, they did all types of tests but eventually it just stopped. Instantly. We were driving and it felt like there was an eyelash in my eye for 2 weeks and when it stopped it was awesome. Hopes this hepls as it will pass and dont stress if they dont find anything
