It's not uncommon for children to get foreign objects, like a speck of dirt, in their eyes. Foreign bodies in the eye refer to any objects in the eye not meant to be there. The object may be in the conjunctiva, a thin membrane that covers the actual eye. Or the object may be in the cornea, the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
