Thanks for your query, what have you tried?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Massage my eyes gently.water in the eye
Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 8 days ago.

ok, apply some salt and water to the eye in place of eye solution

then massage or slide down with your finger from the top

if you fail first time keep trying, till you get it and then hopefully you can pinch it from the eye

Expert:  Anthony Osula replied 8 days ago.

if its stuck at the top of the eyelid, then you'll have to pull at the eyelid so you can try and slide it down with your finger or cotton bud or get someone to do it for you
