Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

That is from the plant juice. You will need to continue to wash your eyes for a longer period of time.

Dr. Rick :

Also, use some natural tears to soothe your eyes.

Dr. Rick :

The good news? As long as you just got the juice in your eyes, and did not cause a corneal abrasion, you will fell better soon. If you have a abrasion on your cornea, it should be better by morning.

Dr. Rick :

If you think you have a foreign body embedded in your eye you will need to see an ophthalmologist to have it removed.

Dr. Rick :

Your nose is running because that is where the tears drain to....

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you? I see you are not online.

Dr. Rick :

hi.

Customer:

Yes I believe I just got some juice and not any other foreign matter. I have noticed that with repeated rinsing of the eyes plus the abundance of tears are starting to have a positive impact (still burn but not as much). Thank you for the advice.
