hi there, I think you need to get an appointment with an opthalmologist and a slit lamp exam done to see that the chip is not lodged on the cornea or sclera as soon as possible. These types of injury can be dangerous if neglected and proper treatment not given on time. Do not rub your eyes and use shades to protect your eyes from sunlight and get attention immediatedly. Taake care.
