I have gotten more stuff in my eyes with face shields and goggles than I have with plain old glasses. One time a peice of gelcoat got under the goggles somehow and in one eye. When I went to pull the goggles off, they slipped out of my hand and snapped back into my other eye. They were covered with grinding dust so that got all jammed into my other eye as well.
I went to the doc in the box and the guy scraped my eyes with a big needle

I went one time with a sliver of steel right in the center. They dug it out with a tweezer and then used a little round bur on a die grinder to grind out any remains of steel that might have stayed and rusted.

I keep q tips in my shop. When I get junk in my eye I just wet the qtip and swab it around on my eye until it catches the chip or whatever and pulls it off. It works 95% of the time.

One time I went to bed and woke up with a sliver in my eye. I guess it was in my hair.

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
