    yup, I got an piece of metal stuck in my eye yesterday morning while I was shaving my 14ff. it was stuck in my colored part of the eye and they scraped it out with an knife and now I got an patch on it I have to take off at 11:30 pm and start puting eye drops in my eye for the next 3 days. the thing that sucks is the metal got in my eye from my hair when I was done shaving the axle. and yes I was wearing goggles. this happen around 11am in the morning and it really started to hurt around 8pm or so in class. exuse the sloppy writing :D it's hard to write and type with one eye.

    OK finally took that damm patch off my eye, that thing was driving me crazy. yeah they gave me some Vicaden (sp?) so I pretty much sleep the whole day yesterday. The good thing is that my eye is not damaged.

    yea had that happen to me except I had 2 pieces in there. My eye was very sensitive to light and just kept watering so I went to the dock and he used this little dremal sounding tool and "buzzed" it out of there as he put it :)
    I had to use those special drops also, all is better though.
    The worst part was that I was wearing safety glasses but they were just the glasses kind and it came up under them and went into my eye, so know I only use the full face sheild :)
    you will be good in no time

    I worked in a welding shop and I was the grinder. We wore safety glasses., goggles, and a full face shield. Went to the clinic 3 times because the shavings always fell off the hair clothing, etc. After grinding try to dust off before taking the goggles off. Good advice to anyone. Metal shavings in your eye really suck.:frown1:
