Question:
What can I do for pain in eye from a sand particle? I have washed out my eye with little relief.

Answer:
It is not washing out because it is embedded and needs to be removed by an ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.). Do not rub or take other steps to remove it. You can only make it worse at this point.
