Dr. James :

hello.

Dr. James :

What have you done so far?

Dr. James :

You should be fine. Rinse out our eyes with water for 10-15 minutes.

Dr. James :

Then you can use artificial tears to soothe the eyes.

Dr. James :

The worry is for infection, but unless you have a pre-existing eye condition, the chance is low.

Dr. James :

If you notice discharge, swelling, significant pain, then you should see an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
