Question
Hello
I notice yesterday a feel inside my eye I looked didn't find anything , then today I had the same feel when I looked I saw an eye lash inside lower lid when I tried to take it off it went inside and I can't see it anymore
Will harm me? will come up (out)again ?
Thank you

Answer
Dear Samia,
Leave the lash alone. The natural protection of your eyes is the tear film and its flow. The eye lash will be swept out naturally.

Dont go putting unclean hands in the eye and also you may scratch the cornea, which is worse.
