Super Glue Eye Drops

on July 7th, 2008 | Filed under Optoblog

This physician had an interesting case about a patient who put super glue in her eye by mistake,and then he used Colace, scissors, cotton-tip applicators, and a hemostat to solve the problem.

Hat tip to Kevin, M.D.

Would any of you reassure the patient and patch the eye for a couple days while it works itself loose? I mean, as long as the patient doesn’t need to use that eye for a couple days? Of course, I think what the ER doctor did is the best approach, but what CPT code could you use besides foreign body removal?
