How to get something out of your eye

I'd like an Instructable on how to get some small object (like a peice of sand) out of your eye (especially if you can't find it, but you know its there). Someone please make this soon. Perhaps within the next 20 minutes :-)

Years ago my boss told me to close the eye thats ok, close one nostril, ( the one on the same side as the eye that's closed) , then inhale sharply thru your nose. The eye that has dust in it should be open. This blows the dust out of the eye. I was skeptical at first, but it does work.

I think it takes that long to upload the pictures, so... Try to at least flush the eye with water. It will sting a bit because it is not the correct salinity but tap or bottled water will do. When you start to tear up, try to blink or pull your eyelid over the other to maybe dislodge it and float it out. 1. Above all, DON'T PANIC. Get medical attention if necessary. 2. Get a second opinion. 3. If the above doesn't work out, get a laywer. Good luck!

old time. get a hair, loop same, have someone drag it across the eye, it will catch on a piece of sand. horse hair is best, but your own hair will work. sorry not in 20 minutes.
