Abby was digging at her right eye last night and I noticed that it was a bit weepy. When I looked closer, I noticed that she had it squinted closed (a lot like a person does when they have something in their eye). So, I had my boyfriend hold her head and hold open her eyelids for me so I could see if there was anything irritating her eye. Her eyelids were all inflamed and as she rolled her eye, I caught a glimpse of something. I managed to grab it with my fingernails and imagine my surprise when out came a 1" long foxtail! Poor baby girl! That had to have hurt!
So, after we made sure there wasn't anything else in there, I washed her eye with warm water and a soft cloth. As you can imagine, her eye is still a little inflamed and weepy, but not nearly as bad today.
Is there anything else I can/should do to help her eye out? She can see just fine, it's just weepy (as I would expect with such a large foreign body in the eye). I washed it again this morning and plan on washing it when I get home from work tonight.
