Just curious, anyone ever have something fly into your eye to which you couldn't get it out? I did yesterday, and it cost me $80 to the eye doctor to get it out. Yesterday I went to Angeles Range, to try out my new SA M1A. After shooting the rifle we headed to the pistol range. On the very LAST shot with the pistol, something flew in my eye and I had to go to the rear and try to rub it out. That made it worse, I packed up and headed to the restroom to wash it out. It was PAINFUL. It didn't want to come out and my eye wouldn't open cuz it hurt so much. Finally I tried to get used to the pain, and drove an hour back home trying very hard not the blink. Everytime I blinked, it hurt. Damn... The drive home, that was miserable. Holy hell.... I tried hard to not blink, the feel of something on your eyeball, underneath your eyelid is not a pleasant feeling at all. I got home to try to clean it out again. No dice. I even bought the "Eye Showers" to wash it out, still no luck. Eyedrops, still didn't work. I guess I had to cope with it, I had a midterm the next morning and this was driving me nuts. Screw the test, I cant concentrate. I headed for bed. Well wouldn't you know it, when I closed my eyes I can feel the damn particle floating around in my eye! The pressure started to build up as my eyes were closed and by 20 minutes of closing my eye with that damn floater in my eye, my right side of the head started to hurt from straining my eye so much. Today: Failed my test, I didn't care. I wanted whatever was in my eye OUT! I went to the eye doctor, to which he used METAL TWEEZERS to get the piece out. COLD, SHARP, METAL against my eye. Damn, might as well cut me open while im still conscious while your at it. I hate anything touching my eye, and even worse something sharp and metal. So, the trip to the eye doc cost me $80 all because I used Oakley sunglasses on that range trip. From now on, its proper shooting glasses. I learned my lesson. And what luck, something flies into my eye on my VERY LAST SHOT of the day. Moral of the story: ALWAYS use PROPER eye protection Dont make my mistake. Hopefully my story will convince you shooters to always wear eye protection. I wore eye protection and still got something in my eyes. And in the end, it was a small speck that caused me 24 hrs of misery.
