    Zain, Think how many times you reached into grab a plant not knowing the cobra was there. If the snake is very young possibly his brother and sisters are around, as well.
    I had a corneal ulcer and I know how terribly painful anything to do with the eye can be. Your poor son. I have to imagine that between the cobra venom and the scrapping the Dr. did it had to be terrible. Glad to hear he is ok.

    Hi Cathy I can understand the pain is so terrible dont know how to describe maybe "excruciating pain" or "throbbing pain", by application local anaesthetic though my son was crying finally managed to remove it thoroughly.
    Ok thanks guys for your kind words deep inside my heart I really appreciated it.Zain

    Zain,

    You said that when you saw the snake you ran for your camera. Very brave. I'd just run - far away.

    Glad your son is okay.
