I somehow got a piece metal in my eye Monday evening. Thought it may have been flash burn, just a little irritated.
Tuesday had some pretty good pain, had to finish a job so I thought I would give it another day.
Wednesday, almost unbearable, was at the eye doc when the door opened. The metal wasn't hard to remove but the rust had to be literally drilled out.
So don't be hardheaded, rust in the eye is a PITA.
