Foreign Bodies in the Eye in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

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.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
- Sandra L. Fenwick, President and CEO
