When a patient has an object embedded in their eye we cannot use a standard eye patch as it will push the item further into the eye and cause more damage.

In this example we use a basic plastic cup or empty (clean) yoghurt pot as demonstrated in the video to stop sight and movement.

Remember that the eyes track together, to stop any movement, you need to cover the healthy eye with a standard pad so that movement is stopped.  Do not cover the ears when bandaging and keep talking and reassuring the patient at all times while waiting for the emergency services to arrive.
