Homeopathic Remedies for Foreign Body in the Eye

Foreign Object in Eye

A foreign body in the eye can come from just a tiny speck of dust, sand or even some tiny metallic particles which may be produced while working in an industrial company.  All foreign bodies can cause discomfort, irritation and pain and most of them can be quite impossible to detect.  The danger arises when the cornea is affected and becomes scarred as this can permanently affect the sight.

Never try to rub away any foreign bodies.  Try gently clearing the foreign body from the eye using a soft wet cotton or the wet corner of a clean handkerchief.

If the foreign bodies are caused in an industrial workplace or by a spray of chemical directly into the eye, it is crucial to urgently seek medical assistance.

Immediate first aid should be administered by using clean running water to wash the eye.  Another alternative is to dip the head with the eyelids forcibly open into a bucket of water.

Homeopathic remedies are especially beneficial when a foreign body is already embedded in the eye during an injury or an accident.
