First Aid for an Eye That's Cut, Punctured

Cover the eye lightly to protect the eye from excess particles and see a doctor immediately. Do not flush the eye with any liquid; flushing may remove fluids that maintain the eye's structure and function. Do not try to remove an object stuck in the eye. You could make the damage to the eye much worse.
