This is Dr. David

she needs to wash out her eye as soon as possible with water

best place to do that is in the shower.

she needs to go see an eye doctor as soon as possible for an eye exam

she should soak her contacts in saline and wash them in saline for a long time.

I hope she has back up eye glasses she can wear until she sees an eye doctor.

can she see an eye doctor tomorrow?
