How to Remove Super Glue from the Eye

Super glue is an adhesive with a very strong bond ability. It is difficult to remove it from the areas of skin where it is dropped mistakenly. It is even more dangerous if you mistook it with eye drops and put into your eyes. It can quickly bind your eye with eyelids and it sometimes can completely be shut, very difficult to open. As soon as you realize that you have put super glue instead of eye drops in your eyes, wash them with warm water to remove the glue, and if not, at least try keeping the damage limited.
