So i was cutting my daughters nails and a little piece flew in my eye. I can't get it out! I can't see it, but I can feel it in there. What can I do to get it out??

Flush with water, see a doc if it's still there afterwards. No rubbing.

I've already tried pouring water in my eye. Now I'm sitting with a warm cloth on it.

It is probably scratched... that is what your more than likely feeling

I agree with flushing water in it...

I would flood my eye with water or visine! That would drive me nuts being in there!

Then have it looked at. A scratched cornea is no joke.

Ok.
If it's still in there will it work itself out?

My guess is if you can't see it in there... it probably isn't in your eye anymore... do you have a magnify mirror ? That would help on getting a good look at what is going on....   pretty much all you can do is flush with the water ...and if it still hurts...see your dr as soon as you can.
