About three weeks ago I was drilling a wall which had a thin layer of metal of top of it and it contained brick below it. I got something in my eye while I was drilling, it was not a huge piece but it made my eye uncomfortable to the point which I had a hard time falling a sleep. So I ended up going to the ER to get it removed.
At the ER the doctor used a needle to remove it, after removing the metal piece he told me there is still some rust in there and it's a little too deep for him to remove with his needle. He said it should move more forward in a few days and if it bothers me I should go and get it removed.
My eye was feeling fairly comfortable after I got it removed but it started feeling like there is something in there again after around 5-6 days. I ended up going to an ophthalmologist to get it checked out. He said there is some rust in there and he scraped it off. I was feeling comfortable for about 4 days until I started feeling like there is something in my eye again.
So I ended going to another doctor as I was in a different state this time. She checked my eye and she said she sees more rust in there, and she will try to remove it all. About 3-4 days has passed and it still feels like something is in my eye. I'm starting to lose hope that I can get rid of this. I'm becoming a little worried and I'd appreciate it if you can answer the following questions.
The metal was right at the edge of my iris, can I be sure that it has got deep enough to hit my iris? could the three doctors all have missed this?
How many more days should I wait before going to the doctor again? It's been about 3-4 days since I last got it scraped.
Please suggest what I should do next if this does not resolve.
