2. How Foreign Objects Enter the Eye

Unsurprisingly, most foreign objects enter the eye as a result of everyday activities. For instance, it is not uncommon for eyelashes and cosmetics to be in the eye. In the case of wind or falling debris, sand and dirt may also land inside the eye. Penetrating injuries are most commonly due to accidents or explosions propelling objects into the eye at high speeds.
