Ok. It's easier to remove the eye soon after the injury, as there will not be so much scarring. If you're sure you don't want this then you could keep infection at bay and let the eye 'organise' naturally as follows:
1. Wipe away any excess mucus carefully with a damp piece of kitchen towel.
2. Instill 0.5 ml or so into the eye (don't forget to shake the bottle before drawing it up).
3. Work the eyelids a little to let the fluid seep in.
Do this once or twice daily if you can. Keep going until the eye starts to heal over naturally - it may be three weeks or more.
Keep looking for pain or swelling around the area which may indicate an abscess if forming. This will need surgical drainage.
Do you have any further questions?
ill try the above do u think it will clean the eye out so as it looks normal despite that she wont see with it
The eye needs to scar and organise itself internally. Once this has happened, the excess mucus will stop appearing, although she may have a little weepiness there which you can clean away daily. It will eventually become shrunken and white.
