When Kentucky electrician Chris Prater felt something in his eye after he cut down a tree from a power line, he thought maybe sawdust was causing the irritation. Nathan Frisby, the safety manager at Prater’s company, took a look at his coworker’s eye and could see something in it, he wrote in a Facebook post. He tried to flush Prater’s eye with saline solution, then used a wet swab, then an eye-wash station. But the speck wouldn’t move, so Frisby urged Prater to go to an optometrist. Prater told CBS affiliate WYMT he was reluctant to get medical help.
User from KY: Wow! Glad he went to an optometrist the tick could have grown n caused more damage. Wise choice!
