I know where you are coming from Maverick. I was using a small die grinder and flipped a piece of metal into my eye. I tried to rinse it out but it didn't work. It happened to be on a Friday evening. The lid got so scratched I couldn't stand it so I went to the ER. They stated that there was nothing in there even though I could see a small spot. So they told me to see the eye specialist on Monday. By that time it had rusted and they had to do the same thing. Also the medicine that you have to put in there feels like a wad of vaseline in the eye. Glasses for me from now on!!!!
