Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
How long ago did this happen?
i didnt feel any pain or stinging but i have a bad anxiety disorder so am starting to get worked up
Ok. It sounds from what you have posted that your eye and vision is OK right now. Is that correct?
its 3pm now here
Do you wear contacts?
yes vision is fine the whole time. most of it hit my nose an little tiny bit splashed into r eye so when i wiped my bridge of nose off i saw it was clear but little brownsish could have been from an ac unit in ceiling or just roof water from rain
Ok. The good new is that your eye has a host of physical and chemical defenses to protect it against stuff like this. Since you eye feels fine (it wasn't acid etc) now I really think you are going to be OK
So. What is the take home message? You will be fine and shouldn't worry.
Does this make sense to you?
so even if it was a little rust or something still ok? i mean my vision is clear and no redness. it feels mostly fine a teeny bit irritated but that was only AFTER i started putting drops and things in it
i used blinktears which i keep in my purse and then got eye wash from drug store and rinsed it multiple times
Yes. Even if it had a bit of rust in it, was full of bacteria etc. you will be fine. As you noted, the eye wash probably irritated things more than anything else.
yes it seemed once i started playing with it i felt it a little bit burning sensation
I'd just not put anything else in your eye so it can get back to normal.
Playing with it could cause the burning sensation all by itself.
ok so i will lay off the sdrops and eye wash
That sounds like a good plan.
Is there anything else I can do for you this afternoon?
thanks dr rick. my usual optomoterist is off today
