cool Be Careful

When I was working on my car on Monday I sprayed the manifold with an airblower to clean it off & managed to get a piece of metal wedged in my eye. Being manly & stuff I didn't bother going to the doctor for a good 30+ hours & since have been sent to Hospital & an eye surgeon & have to go back to them again tomorrow. I have now had 2 days of people continuosly sticking needles in my eye & it hurts like buggery & still not finished cause the metal has gone through my eye into my cornea not just sitting on it like I had hoped
So basically it sucks to be me at the moment so be careful & wear safety glasses & be careful when working on the car & if something does get in your eye go strait to the doctor & don't let it sit & rust in your eyes salt water like I did.

I saw this documentary on either discovery or national geographic about magnets. Eye surgoens can use a special device shaped like a pen with a magnet tip on it. They some how use this to get metal shit out of peoples eyes. Looked really painful!! Let us know how they get it out....

Cheers

It is painful they stab it fairly deep into your eye & move it around alot. It takes ages & I've had it done 4 times now & still going plus you are staring into a bright light watching it all happen
