If an eye emergency occurs, do not rub or press on the injured eyes. Do not remove contact lenses unless there is severe swelling, and do not remove a foreign body in the eye or use cotton swabs on the eyeball. According to DoctorsVisionCenter.com, a doctor should be immediately contacted if something is penetrating an eye, a chemical is the eyes, there is a change in vision or if nausea and a headache accompany pain in the eyes.
