Glue in the Eye
Glue causes problems when it gets into the eye because the treatment for removing it may cause more damage to the eye. Many water-based glues can be flushed out of the eye with water. Superglues need special medical attention. An eye specialist (ophthalmologist) may be needed to treat glue in the eye.
