Resolved Question:

Hello,

Yesterday a large amount of Mr. Clean got into my eyes....I was leaning over and dropped the bottle and it splashed up directly into the eyes..I rinsed my eyes out with water from the tap for about 20 mins...today eyes are quite painful and almost swollen shut. Can't get my contacts in. Any idea how long it may take for the irritation and swelling to subside? Is there anything I can do to help? Keep rinsing?

thanks

Dr. James :

Hello.

Dr. James :

Is there an eye doctor you see on a regular basis?

Dr. James :

You need to go an eye doctor, preferably ASAP. It is critical that you remove the contact lens as some of the cleaning solution can be trapped underneath the lens.

Dr. James :

You have a suffered a chemical burn to the eyes and this is a serious injury.

Please see a doctor as soon as possible and do not delay.
