Needle used in eye to remove debris (Photo)


This photograph shows an 18-guage needle used to remove a piece of metal flake (from a grinding wheel) from the cornea. Special spatulas exist for this purpose, but a blunt needle works just as well and is likely to be more sterile.

To see how this fb removal is done, watch our cornea foreign body removal video, from which this snapshot was taken.
