Hello, Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
Are you available for chat now?
Have you tried giving an eye wash?
Yes, I tried.
about 5 minutes.
Alright. It is likely to have incited a mild chemical reaction. Since the eye still hurts you can give some more eye wash for about 15 minutes.
what's the best way to wash eyes?
This will not only remove most of the irritant out of the eye but prevent any further irritation.
should I use shower? I rinsed with my hands at faucet. is it enough?
i mean, is the way appropriate?
Then start putting lubricating eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day.
so you don't think I need to go to emergency, do you?
Such as preservative free Refresh tears eye drops, available otc.
No, your eye should begin to feel better in a few hours time. In the ER also an eye wash will be given followed by eye drops.
However, persistent red eye, pain would indicate towards a deeper pronlem to the cornea.In that case you can visit an eye doctor.
OK. Thank you.
