I splashed some boiling hot water on my eye and possibly inside.

Resolved Question:

I splashed some boiling hot water on my eye and possibly inside. It seems ok except some soreness. I placed cold compresses for an hour after to take away the stinging. Is there anything I should watch for?

You can use artificial tears frequently or an eye lubricant (available over the counter at any pharmacy). If you notice that you have increasing pain or decrease vision, you should get your eyes evaluated.
