Ow, my eye…

So I’ve been working in the basement with my compressed air nailgun and for some reason, I forgot to wear my safety glasses the other day.  Of course, that’s the day I get some blowback into my eyes.  It didn’t seem so bad but there was definitely something in there because every now and again I’d feel a scratch in my eye.  So this morning, I decided to see if I could get it out.  I pulled out my lower lid, put about 8 drops of Visine in and turned my head back to let the drops rinse out my eye.  What do you know, it actually worked.  Not only that, the piece of metal that was in there actually stuck to my cheek.  Here it is.  Pretty small but when it’s in your eye, it feels like a 2 by 4.
