Do you think it is necessary to see an urgent care doctor today?
Also, could the filmy vision haze be related to the water rinse, or do you think it is probably from the bleach? I rinsed both eyes, and they are both hazy, but I think I mostly only got the bleach in my right eye.
Within an hour or so yesterday my vision had returned more or less to normal, and were not particularly irritated. The artificial tears seem to be helping immensely. This morning when I woke up my eyelashes were kinda crusty and stuck together, very much like when I have had conjunctivitis in the past. Throughout the day they have been mildly irritated, although I can see fairly normally. Is this an expected step in the healing process, or should I be concerned?
My plan is to make an appointment with my normal eye doctor sometime next week when they have availability, it is probably about time for a check up anyways.
Yes, this type of reaction in the morning is to be expected when the front surface of the eye is traumatized by chemicals. As you continue to use the artificial tears and possibly cool compresses, I think you are going to find that you continue to improve.

Dr Dan B,
My eyes are feeling much better today. I had my normal eye doctor do an exam and he says that they will be just fine. Your input and guidance have been much appreciated. It helped me to remain calm, and make better informed decisions. I will be rating you extra happy face.
