My invention relates more particularly'to an
whichis tapered at its forward end l2 and pro
vided with the ?attened nose I4. I provide a pair
of drilled openings'l? in the nose [4 to receive
theends of a looped hair I8 and hold them in the
instrument capable of removing dust, dirt, for
eign matter and the like from the eye, that is
to say, between the eyeball and the upper or lower
lid or where the particle is simply resting upon
the eyeball, or partially embedded in the eyeball,
and includes among its other features mecha
nism for magnifying the area in which the .par
ticle is lodged, so that it is more‘ easily discovered
