    as awful as that is, I LOL'ed. Does that make me a bad person?

    No, that makes you a nurse!

    I was just a teenager spending a weekend in a camper with my best friend and her family. I'd spent lots of nights at their house but never any length of time cooped up together in such a small confined space. Looked up from a card game just in time to see her Dad pop his eye out. Back then I didn't even know you could pop an eye out....ran screaming from the camper like "Jason" was on my tail.

    Thanks for reminding me of that memory!

    Well that was unexpected and gross.. My uncle has a prosthetic eye, but Uhhh never pops it out. That's a great gross out trick though.

    I had a patient once we no eyes- just sockets closed shut. I got in report that she was blind. That was a little understated. I was glad she couldn't see me staring. She turned out to be a favorite patient of mine.

    A couple years ago, a brand-new RN friend had her first code in the ICU. She was super excited that the code team was going to 'let' her do CPR. First compression, guy's prosthetic eye pops out and rolls out into the hall!
    OMG! That is perhaps the most horrifying but comical thing ever!

    Ha! So did I! I think it was more the visual than anything!

    Last night I reached into the upper closet, pulled a box, a pane of glass from a picture frame slid off the box, and slammed against the bridge of my nose. Blood spurted. Nice gash, I have, and bruising. Good thing for steri strips- for 2 cents I saved an ED trip that would have cost $25,000. Now, either karma instilled the above post in me, knowing the accident was going to happen, or- the accident happened because of my post? Either way- I'm lucky it was the EDGE of the glass that slammed against my nose- if it had been the corner, I could easily now be 'enucleated', myself. And, yes- I did get a also then a sliver of glass in my foot, to boot~

    I actually had an enucleation in Jan. 2008. I LOVE these stories, (especially the CPR one). I recently was wearing an eye patch for 10 months, because.........drum roll please.......my eye was just randomly popping out!!! as a nursing student I was just picturing me doing wound care on a gross infected wound and it popping out and falling in the wound.

    I also had surgery once since getting a prosthesis, where the plastic surgeon (reconstructive) worked in the socket then put the eye back in. well as I woke up and swelling began it became uncomfortable to have it in there. I was not with it enough to take it out myself, so I just kind of was batting at my eye. apparently my nurse looked like she was going to be sick thinking of taking it out so my mom did (who hates eye stuff to)

    My sister had Grave's dz, had to have bone removed from under her eye to alleviate pressure on her eyeball.

    Once knew a psyc patient who was blind because he tried to scratch his own eyes out. Happened before I knew him though.

    Curious. What happened? If you don't mind.

    Yes, more then I can count. Are prosthetic eyes more popular in Canada? It's not weird to me?
