  • rub her eye lid(her eye should be shut)it should push itself down toward the bottom of the eye and work itsefl out

  • If you have a book of matches, tear one out and use the 'ripped' end to grab the eyelash...it will not scratch the eye and the moisture on the eyelash makes it get grabbed by the cardboard.

  • Book of matches...regular cardboard isn't put together the same way and will not effectively fray

  • Flush the eye with some water using a dropper. Use a Q-tip? Rub with a damp wash cloth and try to get it to the duct.

  • I would take a warm rag and run it over the eye...or put breastmilk in the eye and try to flush it out

    Any update?

  • i worked in an optometry office and we would take a Q tip and pull the cotton were a piece was sticking out and lightly let that piece touch the lash and it will stick to it and come out every time. she will not even know what is going on.
