Removing Metal From the Eye

Introduction: Removing Metal From the Eye

About: I need more space for my projects, my garage is packed. I like to make things, I've always got a project on the go.

When I get a bit of ferrous metal in my eye this is the first thing I try before going to get a lecture from the doctor about wearing safety goggles. It wont work for anything non ferrous.

I am not in any way qualified to give medical advice I am only showing how I go about performing this on myself. In other words don't try this at home.
