Dr. Rick :

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

Dr. Rick :

The best thing to do is rinse your eyes under running water for at least 15 minutes.

Dr. Rick :

After that put some lubricating ointment (lacrilube and refresh pm are some brand names) and goop up your eye real good.

Dr. Rick :

What kind of lotion was it and how much do you think you got in your eye (rubbed it in a little bit or a large glob etc)?

Customer:

Thanks. Lotion: Equaline sunscreen, spf 50, very water resistant, PABa-free,

Customer:

the lotion was still on my hands, it seems, when I rubbed my eyes.
