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.
Washing out with water is the correct thing to do.
While it may cause some discomfort, this will not do any permanent damage to your eye.
After washing out with water, you should use some artificial tears to soothe you eye.
The take home message? You will be OK.
Does this make sense to you?
