    If you find some foreign objects in child's eye, you need make him not rub the eye with his hand. You can try to use clean towel to get foreign objects out. You have to remember that the towel must be clean. If it is possible, you can boil the towel with water for disinfection. Another way is to teach child blink the eyes quickly or cry to produce more tears. Sometimes, the foreign objects will fall out with the tears.

    If your child happen to get a foreign object in their eyes, you shall flushing their eyes under water first to wash the foreign objects out. Or you shall let her/him raise their head and let him/her open their eyes as wide as possible and try to find the foreign objects out. If you can't help your child get out of foreign objects, you shall take the child to doctor immediately.
