In the Emergency room...

So of all things Dawn and I spent a good part of the night in the ER when we found she got a piece of metal lodged in her eye. We went back today and had to have a second surgery to remove the remaining fragments. She's recovering now and it looks like they did a good job.

Just an FYI when you think of riding without a visor or good goggles.

Been there... It's ruff...
I got a piece of steel in my eye and thought it was dirt.. Thought I rubbed it out and flushed clean.. 8 hours later my eye kept twitching and watering.. Went to the ER and they had to stick a very large needle in my eye to numb it, then grind out the fragment, while I was awake...
The worst part is when you wake up a day later.. I had to hold a hot wash clth on my eye for an hour to loosen the goo..
Then there is the liquid steroid that burns like acid....
Man, I feel for her

Wow. I hope she is alright. I am the guy that always rides with my visor up, and have no alternative eye protection. Keep us posted as to her progress....

Best of luck to her. Glad to hear that it was caught in time and no infection formed. I had a neighbor that lost a portion of her vision because she attributed a grain of sand in her eye when it was actually steel. It got infected and she had to wear an eye patch for months before she could even get partial vision back.

Good luck to the both of ya
