What do I do if my child gets something in their eye?

Foreign bodies on the surface of the eye should be treated with great care. Do not try to remove except by flushing with water or saline solution for risk of scratching the surface of the eye. Position your child’s head over the sink and gently pour lukewarm water over the affected eye for up to 15 minutes. If an object is embedded in the eye, seek emergency medical support.
